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:-

  1. 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.
  2. The club will register you as a member.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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 do the following:
