Coach Education programme for January 2007

Developing our youth ? what is best practise
Leitrim GAA will launch their Coach Education programme for 2007 on this Wednesday evening 17/01/2007, when Professor Niall Moyna from DCU will speak on ?Developing our youth ? what is best practise?. Dr. Niall Moyna is recognised as the foremost speaker on player development from childhood to adulthood and this is an opportunity for any individual with an interest in the development of young players to come along and hear from the best. Dr. Moyna will be joined on the night by Mr. Peter Horgan from Croke Park. The seminar will commence at 8 pm in the Bush Hotel, Ck-on-Shannon and we would ask all GAA clubs to ensure they are well represented on the night.

Foundation Level Coaching Course
Our first Foundation Level course will take place in Aughnasheelin on Friday evening 19/01/2007 commencing at 7.30 pm, with the practical part of the course taking place on the following morning, Saturday 20/01, commencing at 10.30 am. Any person who intends to work with teams should have at least Foundation level complete. The course is open to personnel from any club.

Level one Coaching Course
Our 2007 Level one course will commence on Wednesday night 24/01 at 8.00 pm in the Bush Hotel. Registration will take place from 7.30 pm. The format for this year?s level one will be based on attendance at practical workshops as well as some theory sessions. It is hoped it will make it more attractive to coaches to complete this level. We would also like to point out that the coach education system will change later on this year, and the higher qualification level you are at will decide your entry level on the new system. We would ask clubs to please confirm the number they will have attending with Thomas Keenan.

Practical Workshop ? Make Training Interesting
This workshop, originally planned for Saturday 03/02 will now be held on Saturday 27/01 and will be given by John Morrison from Armagh. John?s workshops in 2006 proved very popular with all so don?t miss out. The workshop will commence at 10.30 am and we will confirm the venue next week.
