The Shine Festival

Last Wednesday and Thursday, Amy Johnson and Anouk Delimata represented Rowing Ireland at the Shine festival. The Shine festival is an event organised by The Shona Project and brings together women and girls in Ireland where they take part in activities, listen to inspiration female speakers and just have fun!

Over the two days, thousands of transition year female students gave it a go on the erg machines kindly lent to us from Waterford Boat club. We were delighted to be invited to be part of this festival by Sport Ireland and HerMoves.

Women in Sport Coaches Network Day – Success!

On Saturday, the Coaches Network Day took place at the Clayton Hotel in Liffey Valley. There were just over 100 women who attended the event from all different sports all across the country!

We heard from three incredible speakers on the day as well as a panel discussion from coaches in different sports at all different levels.

The day began with a vert inspiring talk from Noelle Morrissey who brought us through her journey to becoming an Olympic and World Champion coach and all about the process, planning & execution of long-term coach-athlete development.

We then heard from Orna Murray who focused more into female physiology and menstruation. Orna is a fountain of knowledge in this area and she brought us all through some practical steps we can take as coaches and as women to break the stigma of periods and practical steps we can do to support the young women in our clubs.

The next session that took place on the day was a panel discussion between 5 coaches from Rowing, Triathlon, Cycling and Athletics. It was incredible to hear from each of these coaches about their different highlights and what it means to them to be a part of their athletes journeys. Clara O’Brien from Rowing Ireland spoke about her journey from a Get Going get Rowing coach to being head coach of UL last year.

Last but certainly not least, we heard from Jackie Newton who spoke to us about her journey from being an athlete to a coach to a performing manager and now to her current position now as high performance coach development with Sport Ireland.

It was a fantastic event and thank you to all the coaches who attended!

We are delighted that Jackie Newton will be joining us to talk about her own coaching journey and the road to the LA Olympics! 

There are still a few tickets left so make sure you register before entries close this week. – https://eventmaster.ie/event/MkjrsbdiBz
