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 candidates with a better understanding of children’s sport and physical activity and 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
