For an adaptive governance of women’s sports practices


The consortium develops specialized tools for sports club governance actors.

These tools aim to enhance awareness of women’s presence in sports and understanding of the project’s focus areas.

Self-paced individual or group tests, that help to measure level of knowledge of different topics in each axis

The purpose of the articles is to increase understanding and offer good practices for different themes

They offer examples of different standalone vs. integrated clubs and the benefits of each from a financial perspective

The purpose of the video is to provide information about labour rights


With the help of experience cards, information is added and good practices are offered based on the experience of the player appering on the card. The topic is ‘career support’

Films that provide information and offer good practices about the menstrual cycle, pospartum and motherhood

The purpose of information cards is to provide examples of good practices in career support

Tips are examples of good practices that work in communication practices. Tips have been distributed separately for players, trainers, club officials and managers, and also, for federations and organisations

Tools for

each axis

E-WinS articulates the poles of political, economic, individual, organizational and communicational governance. These poles of governance overlap, and the political and individual poles are transversal to the whole, which makes it possible to articulate the E-WinS project around 3 axes.

Each axis of the project have dedicated tools, alongside transversal ones. They are featured in the project’s best practices database and come in various formats, tailored to the specific practices they support.

Economic models and daily organisation


This axis is a fairly global aspect of governance, which refers to the organisation of financing, infrastructure and partnerships deployed around women’s practices. The creation of innovative tools considered the findings of the report, where attention was drawn to gender inequalities in sport in terms of salaries, sponsorship agreements, and lack of knowledge of legislation (including labour law).

Development of women's sports performancE

TOOLS ON Menstrual cycle, pregnancy, pospartum, motherhood and childcare

In this axis, the focus is on development and performance in women’s practices, including both grassroots sport and high-performance sport. The emphasis in this axis was on how variations in hormones that occur across the menstrual cycle and with hormonal contraceptive use affect performance, training and health. In this axis, we also examined how performance could be combined with the reconciliation of family life and sport and how to live fully from the activity.

Communication practices

TOOLS ON Media coverage, promotion, marketing and visibility

In this axis, the forms and styles that communication takes at all scales of practice were investigated, such as how the visibility of sportswomen is organised by the clubs, what role digital technologies have, and what strategies and policies are in place for the promotion of sports women.
