Women and Girls in Sport – Coaching and Leadership Survey 2021

Closed 12 Apr 2021

Opened 8 Mar 2021


Sport Northern Ireland as the leading public body for the development of sport in Northern Ireland are passionate about maximising the power of sport to change lives. As we develop our new strategy, for the next five years, key themes of; well-being, diversity and inclusion will all be central to the critical development of our sporting system in Northern Ireland.  Sport Northern Ireland’s mission statement is; ‘By 2025; we want the power of sport to be recognised and valued by all.’

In planning for the future, Sport Northern Ireland is undertaking a consultation process focusing on women and girls in sport as related to coaching and leadership. We want to know how best we as an organisation, in conjunction with our partners, and the wider public can encourage more females to take part and flourish in all aspects of sport whether this be as; a participant, volunteer, coach or leader, high performing athlete or an employee working in the area of sport or physical activity. 

Please note that during this consultation, there will be questions concerning the effect of COVID-19 and the impact it has had on those involved within coaching and leadership roles.

We are asking anyone involved in female coaching and/or leadership ( both male and female) aged 16+ years to take part in this consultation by completing the following survey. This will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  Please note all submissions are anonymous
