Bumper Week for Coach Education in Cork


Coach education season is in full swing in Cork at present before the club league programmes commence.

The past week in particular has seen a huge amount of activity with foundation level courses in Glantane, Clonakilty, Ballinora & Whites Cross involving  over 80 coaches from clubs in that area.

Our award one courses are also thriving. Courses are running or just completed in Carrigaline, Clonakilty, Kilara Óg, Carrigtwohill & Glantane involving over 90 coaches.

Our suite of coach education initiatives have been bolstered further by workshops with Dr. Wesley O Brien in the area of youth physical conditioning in Clonakilty, North Mon AG and Mallow involving 70 coaches.

On Saturday 25th February, over 100 coaches attended workshops aimed at nursery level coaches in Ballinacarriga and Mallow. These workshops were delivered by Kevin Murray, Stephen Behan and Dr. Wesley O Brien.

All the above activity will contribute to the improvement of club coaching standards and is just a caption of the amount of activity that is taking place across the county at present.

While formal courses are grabbing the headlines, our GDA’s are out in clubs every week delivering workshops and helping clubs put better coaching structures in place in line with our Benchmarking 2020 Vision Initiative.
