The next Level 1 Coaching Course will begin on Thursday 4th December in Galway.
The Level 1 course is aimed at coaches with some experience in the sport and wishing to improve their coaching skills. Coaches will learn about planning and delivery of a training session on land and water. A specific module on weight training is included. The course covers practical skills such as how to teach good technique, how to rig a boat, introduction to periodisation, designing a training programme and delivering a good training session. Coaches will be helped to further develop their picture of what to look for in good technique.
