The purpose of this resource is to increase awareness about the experiences of women and girls, and provide recommendations to address the psycho-social factors that influence female athlete development.
Coaches and leaders involved with athletes in the Train to Compete and Train to Win stages of LTAD must consider the psycho-social needs of the female athletes to create optimal conditions and systems for athlete success.
The Female Athlete Passport contains questions that athletes complete to help improve their understanding of factors that influence their training, recovery and competition. Athletes may find it helpful to track some of these areas to improve their own awareness over time and to make wise choices in support of their journey to excellence. Coaches (or other Integrated Sport Team members) may also benefit from this information to support monitoring the health and wellness of their female athletes and to design effective and safe training programs.
