Womensport and Recreation Tasmania president Dana Faletic is pleased to continue the partnership with the TIS to offer support to female coaches.

Ms Faletic said coaches provide guidance and are role models to our younger athletes.

“It is vital that we have women in these coaching positions as they are an integral part of all aspects of sport and we are pleased to support more female coaches in Tasmania,” Ms Faletic said.

Congratulations to Jessica Blake (hockey) and Abbey Savage (swimming) on being the successful recipients for 2019-20.

Each of the coaches receive $5,000 as part of the partnership between Womensport and Recreation Tasmania Inc and the Tasmanian Institute of Sport.

Womensport and Recreation Tasmania president Dana Faletic is pleased to continue the partnership with the TIS to offer support to female coaches.

Ms Faletic said "In coaching, as in many other areas, women face barriers to participating. These range from personal barriers, such as lack of time, to structural barriers, such as lack of female role models in their sport. If we can help increase the number and calibre of female coaches, that's a win for other young women aspiring to be involved in sport."
