2018 Coaches Workshop

A Big thank you to all the coaches and parents who turned up for the Coaches forum workshop over the weekend. The forum started with an insightful talk on Positive Mental Health and Resilience in Teenagers given by Dr Niall Muldoon (Psychologist & Ombudsman for Children) & Dr Yvonne Quinn (Snr clinical psychologist). After a short coffee break Ted (club chairman) and Tom (Juvenile Chairman) talked about what the club are trying to achieve and the procedures being implemented to help with this.
To finish off Darren (Games Development Officer) talked about the importance of maximising each training session by planning out the sessions beforehand, giving each person 200+ touches of the ball and to bring in some game play scenario decision making, he also spoke about the importance of getting the kids involved in discussions about the training. Then he ran a short coaching session to highlight how we can achieve these things.
