Screen-Shot-2015-10-14-at-12.19.351_195x150_acf_croppedWelcome to #womenswednesday; a weekly online discussion with female coaches from around the World!

In partnership with Project 500 in the UK, we pose a topic every Wednesday for to join in and send us your thoughts and experiences via twitter or our online coaches forum.  Since it began back in October 2014,  thousands of coaches have taken part and shared their thoughts about everything from gender stereotyping, coach education and even sports bras!  To see old topics and discussions, please CLICK HERE


With all the coaching information out there, the millions of coaches, thousands of websites and hundreds of coaching programmes, occassionally we can get overloaded with information.  Sometimes all it takes is one question to solve a few problems…

So, this week we are asking you one simple question….If you could ask any coach one question who would it be and what would you ask?
