This month we are putting the Women in Coaching Spotlight on Heidi Giles. Heidi is Captain of Tralee RC and coaches both the junior men and women. As you will see from Heidi’s interview, her energy and enthusiasm for coaching has not waivered since she started coaching, 8 years ago.

Heidi shares the memories that keep her going through Covid; the pleasure and satisfaction she gets from coaching in more normal times is palpable. Heidi shows, with a determined and proactive attitude, you can progress from helping out with some gym sessions to become a valuable lead coach for a club.    

Please check out our interview with Heidi:  WiC – Heidi Giles.
