Last year Rowing Ireland ran 12 one day Introduction to Coaching courses in locations across the island. The course is ideal for rowers aged 16+ and parents willing to get involved with helping in the club. We introduce current best practice in coaching methods, rowing technique, safety and welfare awareness, communication and session planning. The course is delivered by Sport Ireland accredited Coach. Developers and participants receive a Certificate from Rowing Ireland/Sport Ireland Coaching. Whether you are a river, coastal or offshore club, you will benefit from this course.

Now is the perfect time to encourage anyone you think might like to do the course. If you are running Easter and/or Summer Camps in your club you should ensure that everyone assisting is Garda Vetted, has completed a Safeguarding course and has a coaching qualification. Our Intro course is perfect for this.
