COVID-19: Challenges and Silver Linings for Canada’s Women Coaches

  • January 2022, Vol. 21, No. 4

Nobody knows what life will be like when the COVID-19 pandemic is tamed. Far-reaching change is the only certainty, and the Journal is indebted to Claire Carver-Dias for tackling the unpredictable, shifting topic and assessing its impact on Canada’s women coaches, many of whom find themselves ambivalent about remaining in the profession. Addressing that ambivalence is vitally important to organizations and institutions which employ women coaches. While in-depth studies within the coaching sphere are yet to be conducted, distressing trends documented in the corporate world suggest that the potential for coach departures must be taken seriously. Wise leaders of sport organizations will pay careful attention to her practical and achievable recommendations. Not to do so risks the loss of the valuable human resource that is the woman coach. - Sheila Robertson, Journal editor.
