The HerMoves day will be packed full of female-focused events and will be a celebration of the wealth of talent in their community

IWA-Sport are delighted to launch our first ever Her Moves Event in celebration of International Women’s Day taking place on Saturday, March 11th at our Headquarters in Clontarf. It’s open to females of all ages including members, parents, volunteers, athletes, coaches, and officials.

Guest speakers on the day include Shakira Coonghe, personal trainer and strength coach, Alan Dineen, strength and conditioning coach and Wheelchair Rugby International Athlete. Both speakers will focus in on key areas such as the Menstrual Cycle in Sport and strength and conditioning for females.

There’ll also be an opportunity for everyone to try out some Wheelchair Rugby and Para Athletics. The day will come to a close with a high energy Pound Fit class with Carla Roberts which is an accessible and fun event that everyone can get involved in.

In 2022, IWA-Sport launched a three-year Women in Sport Strategy, a first not only for the organisation but also for the disability sport sector. The strategy expresses their commitment to providing more opportunities and raising the profile of women with a physical disability in sport in Ireland.

“We are delighted to celebrate our first women and girls only event on Saturday 11th March in our Sport Headquarters in Clontarf. It will be a complete celebration of all our female members, volunteers, parents and coaches.

This Her Moves event marks the one year anniversary of the launch of our Women in Sport Strategy and our commitment to delivering on it is as strong as ever. We hope that as many people as possible from our community will come out to celebrate with us.”
