Is your club/school interested in running a coaching course?

Is your club interested in running a coaching course, or are you looking to improve your own coaching skills? If so, please see below for some important information on how you, and your club members, can get on the road to becoming better coaches.

Applying for a Coaching Course

Step 1:

Designate a person in your club/region to act as Course Co-ordinator. The Course Co-ordinator should liaise with their County Secretary, and contact National Development Officer Darragh Daly to confirm their interest in a course.

Step 2:

When a Tutor becomes available, the National Development Officer will contact the Course Co-ordinator and County Secretary, and confirm a suitable date for all parties.

Step 3:

Once a date is confirmed, the National Development Officer will send out a checklist for the Course Co-ordinator to ensure smooth running of the course. Full payment for the course must be received a minimum of one week prior to the start date.

Step 4:

Course Certification will be distributed by the National Development Officer on receipt of fully completed assessment sheets.


  • A minimum of 16 participants is required per course
  • Coaches must wait a minimum of one year after completing the Foundation Level Course before they can attend a Level One Course
  • Only coaches as approved by their County Boards will be accepted onto a Level One Course
  • Attendance on a course does not guarantee qualification. Each participant will be individually assessed during the course.
