Coaches Corner

If you are a parent in the club and have an interest in coaching, we are always on the look out for new coaches. 

Just a few notes on what’s involved:-

    • A commitment to help out with the training for a particlar age group. The commitment might be for once a week every week. Or might be for less often once you make that clear to the coordinator of that age group.
    • The club will register you as a member.
    • Optionally you can do the Athletics Ireland coaching courses/ladder when they are scheduled (Assistant Coach, Level 1, Level 2 etc). The club reimburses the cost of these (e.g. currently its €60 for the Assistant Coach course).
    • If there is a useful book or DVD that you’d like to purchase and are willing to share it with other coaches, the club will reimburse the cost.
    • You pay as normal to register your own kids but have the benefit of the above items that the club pay for.
    • If becoming a coach in the club, you must fill out the following 2 forms and return to the club:-
      • Coach Registration Form

        • Coaches need to fill in above form each year in order to be registered and insured to coach with the club
