GAA Physical Development Workshops for Youth Coaches in West Cork

posted 18 Jan 2012, 02:00 by Glengarriff GAA   [ updated 18 Jan 2012, 02:00 by Unknown user ]
As part of the Coiste OIliuna Chorcai coach education programme for Spring 2012, a series of workshops will run over the next few weeks incorporating best practice, in terms of coaching youth players (aged 13-18) and more specifically in facilitating their gradual physical development for participation in Gaelic Games.

The Cork development squads have recently completed a six week programme in various centres across the county and it is now planned to extend the core elements of this programme to club coaches, along with general advice on physical development and injury prevention. Liam O’Reilly, (who tutored the west Cork players under the county programme, along with Arthur Tobin) will present on each of the three nights listed below.

Please note that the three workshops listed will each have the same content and similar workshops are scheduled for Carrigtwohill, Glantane and Glen Rovers. After coaches have had a chance to use some of the concepts and exercises contained, we will repeat the schedule a month later when the content will be expanded further.

It is particularly important that any coach involved with players from U13 to Minor in 2012 be informed of the programme. To book places, please email me at kevin.odonovan.gda.cork@gaa.ie The fee is €10 per workshop and places are limited so please book early.
