Coaching Girls Guide – Coaching Cards

The Made to Play Coaching Girls Guide – created by Nike and We Coach, with support from the Youth Sport Trust – equips both female and male coaches with tools that can help make sport fun for girls, because girls drop out of sport at twice the rate of boys by age 14.

The open-source guide shines a light on barriers that are specific to girls and offers insights on how to remove them or to help girls overcome them.

Girls are more likely to love playing and keep playing when they connect with their coaches – but more coaches, especially now, need the tools to teach, motivate, empower and inspire girls (and all children!) to reach their full potential through sport.

These quick tips will help you develop the skills you have (and add new ones) to help children, especially girls, discover the joy of play, movement and activity.
