Coaching

Coaching - Declan Jennings GPO

The performance of a team both in results and the spirit in which they play our games is dependent on their coach.  The role and impact of the coaches and mentors cannot be underestimated and our club is determined to provide the necessary support that they need.

The coach has a central role in the development of the GAA player. Coaches assist players in developing to their potential - whatever that maybe. The challenge for the coach is to create the right conditions for learning to happen and to empower the player to develop him/herself to reach their potential.

Fortunately there is a lot of information available online and we identified a number of sites which provide a range of guidance from basic drills and the simplified games for our younger members all the way up to adult teams.

The key resource page starting point is the GAA’s own website as shown immediately below, however we have also identified our resources that are available online.
