This week, The Coaching Journey is excited to welcome Carrie Taylor on the show! Carrie is a coach, writer for SoccerNation, and she is also the host of Women Talking Football, a radio show!
Our discussion today focuses on women involved in the sport, as we look at the difficulties many women face in a sport that some wrongfully consider to be a "man's game." Why do we see a dearth of female coaches? Why does a man coaching a female team not raise any issues, but a woman coaching a male team raises concern? This is an important and frank discussion that everyone should listen to, because Carrie looks at the double standards that have been placed on the environment and discusses them in an open and honest manner. As we always say, together we can help shape the future of the game. Carrie offers one of our most important podcasts to date, and she provides some must listen commentary on a topic that has wide-ranging consequences.
Be sure to follow Carrie on Twitter: @Carrie1v1 and stay up to date with Women Talking Football by visiting their website: www.womentalkingfootball.com and by liking their Facebook page!
