Abstract

The webinar allowed registrants to hear from five female strength and conditioning coaches from collegiate, high school and professional sport programs, as well as three educators within the sport science field. The panel focused on gender barriers within the predominately male strength and conditioning industry. Panelists spoke on the obstacles they have encountered throughout their careers and recommendations they have for those aspiring to coach at any level. Panelists provided their input on how they are advancing within their own positions and how they are continuing to pave the way for other female strength and conditioning coaches behind them. Educators offered insight on the growing demand for female coaches in the strength and conditioning world and provided registrants with resources available to them such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
