Elite, professional and extreme sport is a growing specialised industry and we often gravitate to either coaching boys or girls in our chosen sport, we also hear coaches frequently identify themselves as male coaches or female coaches, we frequently hear people generalise the genders by stereo typical behaviours!
However is this an accurate, productive or even fair way of thinking?
Is there really a difference between how we should coach male athletes to how we should coach female athletes? And is this bias based of social norms or hard science?
In this episode (#53) we explore some of those physiological, neurological, mental, emotional and social differences between the sporting sexes as well as many of the similarities as we strive to uncover and conclude “If there really is in fact a difference in how we should coach male vs female athletes.”
So don your long term held beliefs and be ready to be enlightened, challenged and even shamed as well as empowered as we uncover some of those well nurtured myths.
