Project 500 is delighted to announce Gary Street as the first of its Male Ambassadors of the Month. Gary Street is one of women’s rugby’s most successful coaches of all time. During an 8 year stint as head coach, under his guidance, the England Women’s national rugby team won five Six Nations in a row and two Nations Cup championships, as well as being crowned World Champions in 2014! Gary is now head coach of the Oxford University women’s team. Project 500 has teamed-up with the RFU and Gary to support more females into rugby coaching. We have already hosted a rugby development day and are supporting over 30 coaches through further CPD and training, including World Cup winner Claire Purdy!
Gary has agreed to support Project 500 as a male ambassador and is a keen advocate for increasing the number of female coaches across all sports, to unleash a whole range of previously hidden talents which can only improve sport as a whole. He believes that is time we accept what females have to offer and is willing to guide them in any way he can to help begin their coaching journeys.
Project 500 caught up with Gary at a recent training session at Oxford University. Watch what he had to say about Project 500 and female coaching: http://ow.ly/Waxeh
