Prepare to Coach Workshops

Published: September 29, 2014

Waterford Sports Partnership, in conjunction with the GAA, Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Camogie Association are delivering three ‘Prepare to Coach’ Workshops to foundation level coaches.

The first Workshop will be delivered on Monday 3rd November from 6.30-9.30pm at the Ballygunner GAA Arena. The ‘Prepare to Coach’ Workshops have been written by Waterford Sports Partnership and will be delivered by Waterford Sports Partnership Development Officers Peter Jones and Pauline Cunningham with assistance from Jason Ryan, PE teacher, Coláiste Chathail Naofa and Kildare Senior Football Team Manager.

The aim of the Workshops is to give coaches a chance to receive detailed feedback on their own coaching skills, highlighting the key areas needed to be a successful coach. The course also gives coaches information on generic practices for all sports and strives to develop questioning and motivation techniques in all facets of the coaching remit.
