dc.description Thesis (M.S., Kinesiology (Movement Studies))--California State University, Sacramento, 2017. en_US
dc.description.abstract Since the passage of Title IX, there has been a rise in female involvement in athletics, which has led to an increase in the number of female coaches; however, the number of male to female coaches continues to be imbalanced. The purpose of this thesis is to determine the percentage of females coaching girls’ club soccer in Northern California. It will also explore the number of female directors of coaching and how that number influences the percentage of female coaches within each soccer club. Data was collected from 1,154 girls’ teams and results show that twenty-one percent of girls’ teams were coached by females and seventy-nine percent were coached by males. Seven out of 175 clubs had a female director of coaching which did not have an impact on the percentage of female coaches within those soccer clubs. Further research is needed to prove a trend in the data. en_US
