One Goal - a project to lighten up the world of football is beginning!
The majority of women do not have the necessary coaching skills, knowledge and self-confidence necessary for a successful coaching career. These include stereotypes, the complexity of women's life when creating a family, the lack of a supportive background, femininity and leadership vs. heroism-masculinity, self-doubt and gender inequalities at the governance level. Together with our partners, we are starting a project that will promote women's football and help develop training skills for women football coaches around the globe. It will not only empower women football coaches but spread the word about the benefits of physical activity for all. Through the next two years, we will organize international trainings for coaches, national free football events for the public to join, methodologies for our results to be used as an example in the future.
We are all very excited to announce the news of our project! And be ready - exciting times lie ahead. Sports are about much more than medals. It is about personal glory and growth. Let’s all grow together!
We organized the first Women Football Campaign of the One Goal project in Budapest. The project participants were young female football coaches who work with women's soccer teams in their countries. We empowered them with the following skillsets:
a Marketing workshop
a football coaching masterclass by Németh Júlia, who works as a goalkeeper coach in Ferencváros FC Women’s Team and also with the U17 Hungarian National Team
a Sports Psychologist workshop
The participants also had a chance to visit the Ferencváros stadium and enjoy some treats from our beautiful capital,
The next stop was Uruguay where they could put into practice their knowledge and coach local kids through a local tournament. Then we visited Italy, where we developed the communication skills of the coaches and shared good coaching practices with all the participating countries.
BAIS already organized a local training course in order to hold a free football theoretical and practical session for women football coaches and players in order to support them overcoming barriers such as stereotypes, prejudices, male dominance in the sports sector and the lack of the support networks.
BAIS representatives and two female coaches had a chance to participate in a Women Football Campaign in Italy, Bulgaria and in Lithuania to learn about communication skills development, injury prevention, motor skills development etc. that they can use during their career in coaching.
BAIS also organized the second local training course and a mixed-gender football tournament within the framework of the project!
