Te Hāpaitanga programme lead Jody Cameron says the interview panel was impressed with the quality of coaches who have been accepted into the third group.

“We have had 28 female coaches go through the programme since its inception in 2020. A standout for me in the makeup of this next group is the number of women who have increased their responsibility in their coaching roles, working with a higher calibre of athlete."

The third intake begins in February 2023 and participants will experience the first of their five residentials early in the programme.

Residentials are the backbone of Te Hāpaitanga’s 18-month programme, designed to enable more women to pursue and maintain a career in high performance coaching in New Zealand. The programme also offers $15k to enhance the women’s coaching opportunities and development.
