Feedback from previous participant – “I have being coaching over 20 years at different levels from school to assistant coach to Irish u18 girls. What the course made me do was re-evaluate the way that I approach coaching the younger players. It also made me realise that the coaches that coach children need to be better educated sports wise than coaching seniors.

We are looking at organising a course during May (Mondays 6.30-9.30pm on May 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th) and the cost is €45 p.p. If you would like to book a place or would like further information please email
