The purpose of this study was to investigate female Judo coaches and how the Welsh Judo Association (WJA) influences the recruitment, retention and development of these coaches and other potential coaches. The review of literature is based around volunteer recruitment, entry, generic motivations and barriers to become a volunteer. The study aims to build on this previous research to ultimately gain an understanding into Welsh Judo volunteers and their comparison to previous research. To gather the data that was needed in order to carry out this study qualitative data collection was used. This was used in order to gain an effective depth and understanding of female’s status in Judo. Interviews were used, purposively selecting individuals who have a specific knowledge of Welsh Judo and those who were experienced and in charge of the development of coaches within Judo. The study concluded that the WJA have a negative effect on females, both as participants and coaches. They are not pro-active in recruiting female volunteers which is detrimental to their development, more specifically female development. A model was created and suggested, to effectively benefit Welsh Judo and their selection process.
