Hertfordshire FA Coach Development Officer, Danielle Evans, coaches football to young children


#SheCanCoach is a new initiative to encourage, promote and support new and existing female coaches

Launched by Hertfordshire FA in 2016 #SheCanCoach is a programme for all female coaches wishing to start or continue their involvement in coaching football across the county.

Steered by a diverse group of women currently involved in the game, the #SheCanCoach network already includes female coaches with links to the Hertfordshire FA, Arsenal Ladies FC, Watford Ladies FC and the grassroots game.

The #SheCanCoach initiative will offer female coaches across Hertfordshire the opportunity to apply for FA Coach Education course funding, in addition to personal advice and support from FA Coach Mentors.

Any female coaches can join the #SheCanCoach initiative for free, no matter what stage of your coaching journey you are on. Those who join can expect to be involved in driving the vision to double the participation in female football.

Speaking about the initiative, Danielle Evans the Coach Development Officer at Hertfordshire FA said:

“We’re excited about the opportunities on offer for our female coaches through our #SheCanCoach program and we hope the network will encourage more females to get involved with coaching and help us inspire the next generation of female coaches and players. 

The FA’s Gameplan for growth, couldn’t come at a better time and we imagine both the #SheCanCoach network and The FA’s plans to double participation for women and girls by 2020, will go hand in hand to develop opportunities for females within Hertfordshire.”

Can I join the network?

Yes! No matter what stage of your coaching journey you are on, as long as you are female aged 16years plus, living and/or coaching in Hertfordshire, and looking for opportunities to develop as a coach, then please register your interest.
