Unprecedented Interest in Coach Education
Connacht Rugby has seen an incredible demand for their education offerings by coaches this autumn with in excess of 250 coaches registering on a series of courses for mini up to AIL.
Keeping pace with the evolution of the game and the revamped IRFU courses appear to be driving the numbers which sees 10 courses take place in 8 different venues.
The new Coaching Awards of Children, Youth, Senior and Performance in partnership with GMIT has combined the best of rugby knowledge with some of the workshops used by world experts such as Wade Gilbert and John O’Sullivan.
In addition to their Coach Development team, all of whom are at the cold face of coaching youth representative squads, Connacht Rugby have called on retired professionals such as JP Cooney and Andrew Browne to present to club coaches.
Here are a list of the remaining courses and venues:
Youth Coaching Award - 11th & 12th October - Buccaneers RFC
Youth Coaching Award - 8th, 15th & 22nd October - Sportsground, Galway
Youth Coaching Award - 15th & 16th November - Connemara RFC
