Munster Key2Coaching Clinic continues to gain great reviews

Last Saturday saw the Munster Ladies Gaelic Council ‘KeyCoaching’ clinic continue in the impressive surroundings of Spa GAA Club, Co. Kerry. Coaches from all over Kerry attended the 2 and a half hour clinic where they were treated to some expert tips from some of the top names in Ladies Gaelic Football coaching circles.Waterford native, Michael Ryan took the participants through the details of preparing for a typical coaching session before they headed outdoors to see that typical coaching session in action. Players from various clubs in the area were invited to participate for the session with Noel O’Connor, Manager of the Cork Senior Ladies.

The coaches present had the opportunity to observe excellent coaching techniques on teaching the basic skills, developing them and providing fun and a challenge to players throughout. During the coaching session national tutors William Harmon and Miriam O Connell facilitated the observation of the coaching techniques by providing additional information and ideas to the coaches.

The clinic concluded with a questions and answers session involving the presenters, players and coaches.

The feedback from the coaches was fantastic;” Very well organised and interesting. Learned new skill sets. Learned also how to keep all players involved and concentrated”

Another coach commented that they “could observe the training session being coached properly and different coaching techniques being utilised”

The clinic was also attended by Marie Halvey Munster Ladies administrator, national tutor Michael Myers, Donal Barry Kerry ladies County Secretary and David O Brien current manager of Clare Senior Ladies Football Team.

Further clinics are planned for other areas of the province in coming weeks, any coaches interested in attending are asked to contact
