Sport Ireland Coaching Children

The Coaching Children Programmes aims to equip coaches with specific knowledge, skills and competencies to cater for the needs of children. Creating good coaching children practices at an early stage will result in a higher proportion of children gaining both movement skills and love of activity that we hope will remain with them in to their teenage and adult years.

The programme consists of 4 workshops and is designed to be interactive and practical. Providing coaches the opportunity to network with other coaches of children.

Sport Ireland have an online Introductory course (1 hour duration) which is recommended for all coaches and can be done as an introduction to the full face to face workshop. To access the online introductory course click the link below:
