Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship

The Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship (WCS) is a partnership between Womensport & Recreation Tasmania Inc. (WSRT) and Tasmanian Institute of Sport (TIS) aimed at providing quality coaching opportunities to women and increasing the number of female coaches in Tasmania.

The WCS will target individuals who might not otherwise be able to access high quality coach education and development opportunities through financial constraints or who are from rural communities.

The WCS provides not just financial but also mentoring support to the successful applicant by providing them with the opportunity to gain valuable national experience whilst expanding their knowledge and skills through hands-on coaching, education and development opportunities.

  • increase coaching expertise of Tasmanian female coaches

  • individual coach development plans;
  • mentoring where possible; and
  • regular program reviews
