A reminder that Rowing Ireland Coaching is running an Introduction to Coaching Course in Galway on this Saturday, December 10th. The course still has four places available. The course will run from 9:45 – 4:30 and will take place at All Core Gym in Ballybrit.

The introductory coaching course is suitable for beginner coaches and parents wanting to get involved with helping in the club. Also, juniors and students aged 16+ with some rowing experience, but no coaching experience, will benefit from this course. At the end of the course, you will be able to assist club coaches on the water and in the gym.

On the course we introduce coaching methods, rowing technique, safety and welfare awareness, communication, and session planning. The cost for the course is €80.
