Sport Ireland Coaching have developed 4 modules, specifically to provide candidates with a basic understanding of children’s sport and physical activity and best ways to optimise children’s enjoyment, participation and positive outcomes. The concepts of Physical Literacy and Holistic Development run throughout the series of workshops and will be covered in detail.
The 4 workshops are designed to be interactive and practical in nature, and provide opportunity for coaches to network with other coaches of children.
Sport Ireland Coaching sees these workshops as the first stage of development and hope we can build on these workshops to develop a comprehensive education system for all those involved in children’s sport.
You must attend all 4 workshops and be over 18 years of age in order to receive a Certificate from Sport Ireland .
