At the university level, 43% of the female teams lead responsible female coaches and 97% of the male teams lead male coaches. Only 19% of university sports directors are women. Studies have shown that female coaches are more if the sports coach is female. 28% of coaches are women. 12% of female athlete management from Canberra are women.
There are many proportions and information there, but the moral of the story is: Where are all the women on Earth and how can they support them?
If 58% of assistant coaches on the women’s team are women, why are they going from assistant coaches to head coaches? And it is not surprising that 1051 AD is a woman in 201 years, even if most exercise trainers agree to leave training and go to administration.
What happens? Part of the problem is that as a coach (male and female), I accepted myths about women in athletics. Let’s see some of them.
Believe that people will prevent women from exercising (and how to stop them)
Marriage and family; Women can run Fortune 500 companies, but the belief that once a coach marries and has a child, it will be the death of her career, is still common. In an excellent article on the Harvard Business Review website, Posting Women and Uneasy Powers, Jeffrey Pfeiffer said that women should “partially choose their partners depending on whether or not they will support the quest for power.” He claimed that the search for power, in this case, was being carried out successfully on land. This is possible for women who receive family support
Athletes prefer male coaches. This is what I quoted from the popular volleyball forum. In my opinion, the man thinks that the woman takes over because the man’s emotions do not dictate the coach’s way. Coaches control how their feelings control the coach too much. To be honest, perhaps the most important factor for men in most of volleyball life is. You could say that the people on the panel are crazy, but I think this is an easy way and our job is to train in a logical and fair place. Emotions have no gender. Both men and women show emotions. Female athletes do not care about emotions (anger, emotions, etc.), but they must be suitable for situations and fairs. I think the last sentence of the quote is everything. Most people prefer what they know. And most athletes know the male coach.
Gender dynamics interfere with them. In addition to the previous point, a typical player has a male coach, and from this perspective, it is used for coach/player interaction. Check out Kathy DE Boer’s comments on this genre puzzle. DE Boer is the author of gender and competition. The way men and women approach and play differently are currently Executive Director of the American Volleyball Training Association and former Deputy Director of the University of Kentucky. “Women perceive women’s attachment as a decisive factor,” she said. “The network of relationships is characterized by the culture of women.” So what a female athlete looks for in a male coach is very different from what a female coach sees. As a coach, we need to know how to care for an athlete to be successful. We can be tough and demanding, but we must understand what the difference between female and female interaction is.
These were the three decisive reactions to the general myth of women in the movement. We have a great opportunity to show that women can be great coaches and female athlete management!
