Maria Gallo: a fearless ambassador for women’s rugby

Congratulations to UBC School of Kinesiology professor and former Canada International, Maria Gallo, who has been chosen as a select group of women coaches to participate in a new World Cup initiative, the Coaching Internship Programme for Rugby World Cup 2021, where she hopes to “act as a catalyst for change” and inspire young women to follow their ambitions.

“There are 12 women that are part of this new programme and a lot of us will be working with our current women’s head coaches, many of which are men, so hopefully we can showcase that women can also be part of high-performance coaching staff not just at an assistant level,” she said.
