In September 2015, Liz Hanson from Athlete Assessments, and Marlene Bjornsrud, Executive Director of the Alliance of Women Coaches, headed to Japan to attend the inaugural Japanese Women Coaches Academy. Check out the photo board below of some highlights of the trip.

The Japanese Women Coaches Academy was a great success. Liz particularly enjoyed delivering a session on CoachDISC, which was translated into Japanese in the lead up to the Academy.

The idea for hosting a Japanese Women Coaches Academy came from Dr. Etsuko Ogasawara, Executive Director of the Japanese Center for Research on Women in Sport (JCRWS). After attending previous WCA’s in America, Dr. Ogasawara decided to run a Women Coaches Academy in her home country of Japan. The event was hosted by the JCRWS, and was largely modelled on the American version.
