Based on the premise that many women are already 'coaching' in their everyday lives, we would like to encourage them to use their skills in sport and physical activity. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, nurse, office manager, teacher or student, women help others to learn new skills, develop and grow as people. These are all skills that coaches, activators and leaders need to make sport a worthwhile and meaningful experience for their participants.

Project 500 is a campaign to address the imbalance in the number of male to female coaches, creating a more diverse workforce to drive the growth of female participation in sport. It has seen over 500 female coaches recruited, developed and deployed across the seven South East counties. Project 500 won't stop there, further plans are being developed to continue building on its success, so make sure you sign up to be at the forefront of female coaching.
