Award 1 Coaching in Blarney 2019-02-04 10:29:00

Over the weekend and next weekend, we have being running the Award 1 Coaching Course to develop our coaches within the club.

The Award 1 Coach Education course is the second award on the coaching pathway of Gaelic Games. The course is aimed at coaches that have progressed through the Foundation Award and have experience as a coach.

The Award 1 course has been designed to take account of the different playing capacities that exist between children (up to 12 years), youths (age 13 – 18) and Adults (age 19+) and the competencies that a coach is required to display when working with each of the playing populations. Therefore, coaches can specialise in coaching the particular players that they are involved with.

The course is 16 hours in duration and covers a number of key modules including:

    Technical Proficiency
    Tactical Prowess
    Team Play
    Physical Fitness
    Playing Facts
    Psychological Focus
