Kerry Coaching and Games are organizing a number of practical Workshops for Coaching beginning in February 2016.
For his year the workshops will be delivered by a number of different coaches that will provide additional ideas on how to develop and improve young players.
The workshops will concentrate on what areas are important to develop in players at specific age groups and demonstrate Games and drills to illustrate how coaches can improve their players. As players go through development phases there are certain stages where it is crucial that they are introduced to the correct movement and skill development techniques. These practical workshops over the coming weeks will demonstrate at what stages to introduce players to different areas of development.
There will be 3 workshops in total with each session concentrating on a different age group. It is important that at least 1 coach from each of the age groups in your club gets the opportunity to attend one of these workshops. If coaches are working across a number of age they are welcome to attend as many of the workshops as they want.
The cost of each workshop is 5 euros per person.
