About this event

All too often in the past, programmes offered to children in sport are scaled down versions of adult activity. Children are not mini Adults and their needs in sport are different to the needs of other populations. Children want different things from their sport participation and require different approaches given their different stages of development both physically and mentally. Therefore, the coaches of children need to be equipped with specific knowledge, skills and competencies to fulfil the needs of children.

Coaching Ireland have developed 4 modules, specifically to provide coaches with a basic understanding of children's sport and physical activity and best ways to optimise children's enjoyment, participation and positive outcomes. The concepts of Physical Literacy and Holistic Development run throughout the series of workshops.

Each workshop is 3 hours in duration and is a combination of theory and practical learning, each coach will receive a bank of games covering balance, co-ordination, speed & agility and inclusive & adaptive games. Read more about each Workshop at
