We are plannning on running a foundation coaching course for all new mentors on Friday 12th march and Friday 19th march.
Attendance on both days is required to complete the course.
The course will be run between St Patricks Palmerstown and Round Towers Clondalkin. There will be a maximum of 10 places available to each club.
All mentors now coaching are required to have foundation level done so take your chance while its here – the course will take place in Round Towers Clondalkin
Dates for foundation award
Friday 12th march 7pm – 9pm
Friday 19th march 7pm – 9pm
We are also running an award 1 course. this is the new version of the level 1 course and is the next step up from foundation. a foundation award is essential to attend this course. this course is aimed at mentors coaching between the ages of u8 and u12. again the course will be run between the 2 clubs and again is limited to 10 places per club. to complete the course takes aprox 15 hours. we are running this course over 7 months. so you will be required to attend 1, 2 hour session per month. we feel this is the best way to run this course as there is a lot of information and it doesnt require you to attend any 4 or 5 hour sessions. there will be a cost of 30euro per person to attend the course. the course will take place in st patricks palmerstown.
