However, this doesn’t have to be the case; with the correct support, developed through awareness and understanding embedded into coaching and athlete practice, an individual who menstruates should be able to perform optimally throughout their cycle.
The Welsh Institute of Performance Science is offering menstrual cycle in sport courses and workshops via a mix of online and face-to-face opportunities.
Learning intention: Provides an introduction to the menstrual cycle in sport focussing on the biology, symptom awareness and management along with advice on ‘starting the conversation’ with female athletes.
