Some people think it is a gender thing, but I believe it is more about the quality of the human being. Society teaches you to behave in a certain way, it is not because you are a man or a woman.” Former Belgian Red Panthers captain Joy Jouret was one of the coaches on the course and she has very strong views about the essential human element of coaching. Some of her opinions are borne of practical experience gained by coaching men and women at all levels from youth teams to adults; some of her viewpoints are the result of amount of time she spends looking deep into her own coaching and ways of improving it.
