Women in Sport

Women in Basketball

Basketball Ireland has been advocating for the participation of women at all levels, through its commitment to creating more opportunities for female athletes, coaches and administrators. 

Sport Ireland has identified four key areas that have emerged as current gaps and future opportunities for women in sport. These target areas are as follows:

  • Coaching and Officiating
  • Active Participation
  • Leadership and Governance
  • Visibility

To address the target areas and achieve the identified objectives, we have devised a number of programmes to support and encourage all female participation.
