Women in Sport (WIS) week

Women in Sport (WIS) week is taking place March 7th– 13th.

The aim of Women in Sport Week is to:

  • Celebrate every women and girl who plays, coaches, officiates, volunteers, works in and leads out on Women in Sport.
  • Promote and highlight the ongoing work of Sport Ireland, NGBs, LSPs and other stakeholders and clubs under the topic of Women in Sport.
  • Highlight some of the programmes/initiatives funded by Sport Ireland Women in Sport Programme.

This year’s Women in Sport Week is focused on four areas – Active Participation, Coaching and Officiating, Visibility & Leadership and Governance. 

Sport Ireland’s vision for women in sport is one where women have an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential, while enjoying a lifelong involvement in sport.
