In a recent newspaper article
(3/17/14, Trinidad Guardian), the gen-
eral secretary of the Trinidad and Toba-
go Olympic Committee (TTOC) and
several administrators of various sport-
ing disciplines were reported express-
ing growing concerns about the declin-
ing participation of females in sports.
The general question of the adminis-
trators was how to re-attract and
attract females into sports.
Several strategically probing questions
have to be answered if any attempt is
to speak to the issue at heart of increasing
female participation in sports. Firstly, is
there a stated recognition of the need
to have and increase female participation
is sports? Secondly, what data exists
about female views and participation in
sports? Thirdly, and linked to the ques-
tion on data, what strategic programmes
are in place to increase female partic-
ipation in sports? Fourthly, are the req-
uisite human resource capacity and sup-
port systems available to ensure females
participate and remain within sports?
As it relates to the first question, it
is evident that women and sport is
recognised by sporting administrators
as important if only in principle. The
Ministry of Sport and the TTOC are
signatories to the Brighton Declaration
for Women and Sport 1994. Several
other Caribbean countries including
Barbados and Jamaica are also signato-
ries. The Ministry of Sport promotes
women and girls in sport with an annual
festival in various sporting disciplines.
Additionally, the TTOC constitution
reinforces the objectives of the Brighton
Declaration in its constitution by pro-
moting "equality of participation of men
and women in sports" (TTOC consti-
Internationally, sporting administra-
tors, policy makers and academics have
been striving over the years to develop
the most appropriate strategies to attract,
increase and sustain female participation
in every aspect of sports. Some of these
discussions have resulted in international
declarations such as the Brighton Dec-
laration on Women and Sport 1994 and
in the US there is the existence of Title
IX.The first international conference on
women and sport was held in Brighton,
UK May 5-8 1994. The outcome of the
conference was the Brighton Declaration
on Women and Sport 1994. The spirit
of the Brighton Declaration was the
strategic development of programmes
across all continents to increase women
participation in sports. In addition,
women involvement should extend
beyond the field of play into other areas
such as administration, coaching, and
officiating. It was viewed that increase
involvement of women in all aspects of
sports would result in the creation of
an equitable sporting culture.
In the US, Title IX, 1972 was intro-
duced to ensure that sex was not used
to discriminate in the access and dis-
tribution of resources. As such Title IX
necessitates equal access to sporting
facilities to men and women and both
male and female athletic abilities be
given equal attention.
The question of data is critical if any
strategic development is to take place
as recommended by the Brighton Dec-
laration. For instance, is there both quan-
titative and qualitative data that speaks
to the meaning that females across dif-
ferent age groups, ethnicities, social class,
geographical locations and religions asso-
ciate with sports? This question has
been the subject of much research in
many developed countries through such
organisations as the Women s Sports
Foundation in the US, Sport England,
the Australian Sports Commission and
Once there are clear objectives and
reliable data is available, appropriate
strategies can be developed and imple-
mented. As sports may have different
meanings to different persons, the meas-
ures would have to reflect a high level
of creativity in order to build a culture
of sports among females. For instance,
programmes must be flexible enough
to ensure that it does not conflict with
religious beliefs and practices. The key
is that females do not see participating
in sports as violating their religious
Once measures have been developed
and implemented, data has to be con-
sistently collected to evaluate stated out-
comes. Such information can then be
used for objective reviews of the overall
programme. Reliable data allows for
informed decision making as opposed
to decisions that are made on feelings
Finally, the aforementioned issues are
heavily depended upon of adept human
resources as well as the support of other
social agencies such as the family, school,
religious organisations, business com-
munity and the media. It is critical that
coaches are skilled enough to be able to
understand and act upon appropriately
to gender differences. It will be inform-
ative if sporting organisations can
encourage more females into coaching.
One of the questions that the data can
speak to is whether or not females prefer
working with male or female coaches.
Additionally, do parents and guardians
prefer to have their female children work
with female coaches or are indifferent
to male coaches.
