Coach Education

There were 29 volunteers at the Arena on Tuesday night taking their first step onto the coaching ladder.

We had 20 from within our club on the IFA Grassroots Intro Course. Part of the process for coaches is to have AccessNI check, IFA Coaching Certs, First Aid plus attending a Safeguarding Children Course.

The club have brought in 12 new coaching volunteers this season which brings us to 60 which helps the club to field 34 teams.

Within that group of 20 club volunteers we had 3 U15 Female players take part in the course which we hope will encourage them to become part of the coaching staff at some point.

A big thank you to Ken Duncan and Andy Hardy from the IFA for delivering the course and good luck to all those volunteers that took part and wishing them an enjoyable time on their coaching journey.
