Rebel Óg Coaching Benchmarks 2020
Blarney GAA is working closely with our local Games Development Administrator (GDA), Aine Murray, and has entered the 'Rebel Óg Coaching Benchmarks 2020' program.
Rebel Óg Coaching Benchmarks 2020 provides a template for best practice in coaching, promoting maximum participation and optimal playing standards in juvenile clubs throughout Cork city and county.
The programme includes minimum requirements for entry, with subsequent progression to Bronze, Silver or Gold targets, which clubs would strive to achieve with the assistance of their local GDA. Bronze criteria are based on establishing a primary school coaching and games programme in schools within a club’s catchment area. Silver criteria are based on an appropriate programme of club coaching and games for 5-12 year olds, while Gold criteria are based on appropriate coaching and games for 13-18 year olds.
It is an objective of Blarney GAA club to obtain the gold accreditation in the future.
