The Girls' Ultimate Coach Forum is an opportunity to talk around the topic of how as a community we can develop more opportunities for girls to play Ultimate. The session will look at the bigger context of girls in sport, consider successful campaigns and asks what should we do / what should we do differently.


In advance of the forum please consider these discussion areas:

Accessible opportunities - what might these look like? Do we have any examples to follow?

Empowerment and enjoyment - what gives girls a sense of empowerment and ownership? What makes it fun?

Confidence and motivation - confidence to get involved in the first place? what makes someone keep coming?

Being part of a team - how do you create this from the start?

Coaching - what do girls need?

Please come prepared with any other questions and ideas you'd like to discuss with others.
