Positive and Energizing: 2011 Women in Coaching Workshop

June 6, 2011

Each year, the Coaching Association of Canada’s (CAC) Women in Coaching (WiC) program holds a workshop for Canada’s top female coaches. Initially aimed at female national team coaches, the workshop has evolved into an intensive, three-day professional development and leadership opportunity for female coaches from across the country whose work ranges from Canada Games athletes to Olympic medallists.

“The workshop is a unique opportunity for some of Canada’s most talented coaches to share experiences and expertise,” says workshop organizer Sheilagh Croxon, a two-time Olympic coach and head coach of synchronized swimming at the Granite Club in Toronto. “Every workshop is unique, but this year it was particularly rewarding to welcome up-and-coming coaches in addition to some of Canada’s most experienced and successful female coaches. This powerful combination will help to ensure a strong transfer of knowledge to the next generation, which is so vital to changing the numbers at the top of the profession.”
