We are finalising plans for our next Level One course in Dublin. Level One is aimed at rowers/coaches who have attended the Introduction to Coaching course (although we may make an exception in certain cases) and who are coaching juniors/adults on a regular basis. Over the duration of the course they will have the opportunity to learn about coaching best practices to enable them to support and develop rowing talent both on and off the water. This is the second step on the Rowing Ireland ‘Coaching Pathway’ and will certify them to become a Level 1 Coach in your club. Successful completion of this course will typically enable them to coach Junior 12 to Junior 18 athletes and adults from novice to intermediate grades.

With over 27 hours of learning in total between online lessons and practical sessions covering S&C, rigging and coaching practice, the course cost of €320 represents excellent value.

The course timetable is as follows:

1. Online module, Tuesday, 23 August, 19:30 – 21:00.

2. Online module, Thursday, 25 August, 19:00 – 21:00.

3. 2 Full days 9:30 – 16:30, Neptune Rowing Club, Sat/Sun, 27/28 August.

4. S&C module, Full day, Saturday, 20 August. UCD HP gym, Belfield

5. Online Nutrition & Hydration module to be advised.

Can all clubs please check with your coaches and see if any wish to attend on these dates? We are heavily subscribed and don’t want to offer places to coaches who can’t make the whole course. Please ask the coach to register here.

Once the course has been filled further details will be sent out and the link to make payment.

We are also committed to rolling out our Introduction to Coaching Course as needed. This is an eight hour course we can deliver to groups of rowers or non rowers who want to help in your club as assistants to the club coaches. We can deliver it online or in person depending on the situation. 

See here for more details of both courses.
