I like the approach that the article suggests to get women involved:
"Qualified people often do not volunteer because nobody asks them," says Sheilagh Croxon, a consultant with the Women in Coaching program, the CAC and coach of high performance women athletes in synchronized swimming.
"And when they are asked to coach, many women decline because they think that they need expert skills. The strategy for recruiting women will reflect this research.
"We are going to work with our community partners to appeal to women personally. We'll ensure that there are women mentors or co-coaches for the new women coaches."
With the summer coming up and amateur sports of all varieties in full swing, I encourage all women (and men!) to get involved in coaching.
