Club Coaching Course for TY Students


The Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club Coaching Department are organising a Coaching Course for students in the Transition Year Programme.  The course will be suited to students who have an interest in Sport or might be interested in a career in Sport or in Teaching.    

Students will have to complete a 1.5 hour Introductory module outside of school hours in Kilmacud Crokes.  Included in the module is a theoretical session dealing with the priorities and the principles of coaching children.  Students will also have to be available to coach on the following 3 Friday evenings at the Club Nurseries in order to get the practical element of the course completed.

To qualify to work on our camps the students must be members of Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club.  

Students must also complete the following:

The Transition Year Coaching Course or a Foundation Award Course
Help out with the running of some Primary School Blitzes  and/or the Club Nurseries and the running of the Mini All Irelands in June

We are running the next Course on the following date:

·      Tuesday 11th September  2019, Room 4, 4.30pm – 6pm

Once we get a full list of attendees we will forward information on the GAA Vetting Policy & Procedure. Before any coach starts to work with children in the club they must complete the Garda Vetting procedure through Kilmacud Crokes. Once a coach turns 16 years of age they must be vetted. 

 Students who complete this course will also have an opportunity to gain experience coaching during School time in some of the local primary Schools.

 For further information and to reserve a place on the course please ring/text Paraic Mc Donald, Coaching Director, Phone: 086-2244265 or Niall Corcoran, Club Coach, Phone: 087-9834287.
