Cork Ladies Footballers looking for coaching tutors




By Mary White


a new year and a new beginning and for Cork Ladies
Football. Last year was hugely successful and
the game continued to grow rapidly both locally
and nationally. With 53 clubs in total and over
8,000 players, underage development has become
a big part of Cork Ladies Football. As a result
the Association is currently looking for suitable
individuals to become Foundation Level Coaching
Tutors for the Ladies Gaelic Football Association,
with the possibility of progressing to further
coaching levels. The role of the tutor will involve
delivering the FUNdamentals syllabus to adults,
which was specifically designed for coaching ladies
football to young female athletes.

FUNdamentals is a dynamic introductory course
exploring issues such as Player Pathway, planning
and implementation of training programmes, practical
coaching and good coaching practice. Tutors will
be expected to work weekends and travel is involved.
A good knowledge and understanding of Ladies Gaelic
Football and the principles of coaching is essential,
as is access to a car.

Completion of the FUNdamentals course will be
an advantage. Tutors will be paid per course delivered
and all expenses are covered. Full training, which
is based in Dublin is provided by the National
Coaching and Training Centre and will involve
5 full weekends as well as an in-house Tutor Induction.
If interested forward your details, CV and short
description of Coaching/Football experience before
January 28th to Paula Prunty, Ladies Gaelic Football
Association, Level 6 Cusack Stand, Croke Park,
Dublin 3 or email

Alternatively if you’re interested in having the
syllabus thought to members of your football club
or school staff, why not contact the Ladies Gaelic
Football Association who would be more than delighted
to organise a weekend coaching course. As it’s
the fastest growing sport in Ireland, those involved
with young females, at club or school level should
avail of this opportunity. * Trials for the Cork
Junior Ladies Football team take place on Sunday
January 9th.

Clubs and players interested should contact Manager
Cathal O’Callaghan on 087-9494136 for more information.
