This Award 1 Youth/Adult course is the 2nd award for coaches of Gaelic Games. The course is aimed at established coaches who have been working with a team for at least 1 season having held the Foundation Award.

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. By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Organise a programme of games and skill development activities appropriate to each participant’s needs and abilities
  • Organise progressive activities (drills and fun games) to develop five key skills
  • Organise progressive activities to develop movement skills appropriate to Gaelic Games
  • Organise and manage players for an effective practice session
  • Build Rapport, Observe, Analyse, Explain, Provide Demonstration and Provide Positive Feedback to Players

Competencies to be developed

The course is ran over 3 Saturdays (10am - 3:30pm) + 2 Thursday Nights (7pm - 9:30pm) and coaches wishing to attend must hold the Foundation Award for at least the last 6 months. The course covers a number of key modules including:

  • Technical Proficiency
  • Tactical Prowess
  • Team Play
  • Physical Fitness
  • Playing Facts
  • Psychological Focus
  • Communication

Course Philosophy

The GAA is committed to implementing an integrated Coach Education Programme with a view to maximising participation, optimising playing standards and ensuring that players’ needs are catered for in a balanced way.

The course is designed to promote the development of the How to Coach skills through modelling of best practice, as demonstrated by the tutor, experiential learning and through the guided reflection on previous experiences – as a coach, player, official or parent – facilitated by the tutor.
