Female soccer coaches and female strength and conditioning coaches are on the rise, despite the sports world still being a male dominated field. Currently, there are many female strength and conditioning coaches paving the way in the Collegiate and Professional rankings. Kansas University’s basketball team has a secret weapon in Andrea Hudy, the only female head strength and conditioning coach with 9 national title teams and has helped develop over 2 dozen NBA players. On the MLB side, we saw the first and only female strength coach, Rachel Balkovic, become the full time strength coordinator for the minor league system of the St. Louis Cardinals.
With the increase in female coaching positions, it’s important for past female athletes to become mentors for the younger female girls in the community. Young girls would benefit greatly on and off the field with a female role model to look up to. Female coaches share the same social experiences and can help young girls as they grow physically and mentally.
