News Blog

Donegal Sports Partnership are inviting you to join our Free Women in Sport Webinar, on Tuesday 8TH March at 7pm as we look to the future of Women in Sport leadership in Donegal. The purpose of this webinar is two-fold, one to hear the experiences of current leaders in competitive and recreational sport and Physical Activity in Donegal. Our inspirational speakers will share their insights of their journey from when they first started out to their current role in sport. They will discuss how they got involved and what motivated them to stay involved and future aspirations.

Secondly, we want to use this opportunity to promote and recruit future leaders to be part of our Female Leadership Programme starting at the end of the month. This leadership programme has proved to be hugely successful before the pandemic hit. Donegal Sports Partnership is committed to developing strategies to increase Women’s participation in Sport in the county and to provide opportunities for Women to engage in meaningful programmes which will build towards a lasting and positive relationship with Sport.

The aim of the programme is to provide training and support to women to help them achieve success in leadership roles in their sport. It will give women and young girls across Donegal the opportunity to enhance personal skills, increase their confidence and create networks with like-minded people across different sports.

Sessions will be delivered using a combination of both online and in person settings. The sessions will be interactive which will focus on developing confidence, leadership, resilience and effective communication. 

The programme is specifically designed for female leaders over 16 years old working or volunteering in sport (Committee members, officials, coaches) and to those who want to pursue a future role in club activities.

Those who attend this online session will get an opportunity to meet past participants from the Female Leadership Programme delivered in 2020. This will enable attendees to ask questions and hear from their experience first-hand.

Places will be offered via application process and as the course is heavily subsidised through Sport Ireland Dormant Accounts, we are able to offer it at 25 Euro per participant. Application deadline is Friday 18th March @ 12pm
