The Award 1 Coach Education course is the second award on the coaching pathway of Gaelic Games. The course is aimed at coaches that have progressed through the Foundation Award and have experience as a coach. Ideally coaches should be working with or intend to work with the youth player (age 13 – 18) as the course content is designed towards the youth coach.
The course is 16 hours in duration and covers a number of key modules including:
• Technical Proficiency
• Tactical Prowess
• Team Play
• Physical Fitness
• Playing Facts
• Psychological Focus
The focus of the course is the further development of the ‘How to Coach’ skills by placing the participant in situations that they will face as coaches – the organisation of games activities, activities to develop skill and activities to develop the various aspects of physical fitness.
