“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.

Please see attached outline of the programme and each workshop.

The cost of the course is €45 per participant.  If you wish to book a place on this programme please email with the below details:
