Coaching ChildrenDLR Sports Partnership will be running a Certified Coaching Ireland Programme starting the 9th of October. This will be running for 4 Wednesdays from 6:30-9:30pm in Sliabh Rua Gaelscoil, Ballyogan. The cost of the programme is €20 per particpant (these fees are subsidised through the Ballyogan Sports & Physical Activity Hub and the Dormant Accounts Fund).

Children's needs in sport are different to the needs of other populations; therefore the coaches of children need to be equipped with specific knowledge, skills and competencies to fulfil the needs of children.Children want different things from their sport participation and require different approaches given their stage of development both physically and mentally.

Coaching Ireland have developed 4 modules, specifically to  provide participants with a better understanding of children’s sport and physical activity across all types, including best ways to optimise children’s enjoyment, participation and positive outcomes.

Workshop 1:  Coaching Children Successfully in Sport – An Introduction for Coaches

Workshop 2:  Child-Centred Coaching – Understanding Child Development & Learning and its Impact on How We Coach

Workshop 3:  Developing Physical Literacy through Sport 1 – Coaching Children to Move

Workshop 4:  Developing Physical Literacy through Sport 2 – Coaching Children to Think
