CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

There is a clear and undeniable shift in the way society is starting to view women in sports. The victory of the Lionesses in the 2022 European Football Championships marked a newfound interest and enthusiasm for women’s team sports in the UK. Nevertheless, there remains progress to be made.

In this webinar, performance nutritionist Faye Townsend, will explore the diverse challenges that impede the involvement of girls and women in sports. The focus will encompass practical, personal, social, and cultural barriers.

We’ll cover:
