Opportunity for LGFA Inter-county Players to get on Coaching Pathway

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association is working tirelessly to encourage more of our players and past players to get involved in coaching and get their step on our Coach Education Pathway. With this in mind we are excited to announce that we will run an LGFA Inter County Player Level 1 Coaching Programme on Saturday 23rd November at Marino Institute, Griffith Avenue, Dublin from 10.30am to 5.00pm which will contain only past and current LGFA Inter County players.


What is LGFA Inter County Level 1 Coaching Programme?

A course where experienced Inter County players may be accredited to Level 1 within the Coaching Development Programme (CDPI) based on objective assessment of their previous experience and qualifications. The players will attain Level 1 coaching qualification without needing to complete the FUNdamentals unlike other participants.

The course is to provide experienced players with an avenue to gain credit on the coaching ladder. There will only be past and current LGFA players in attendance and we are embarking on this avenue to reward and recognise their contribution to our sport.

Participants will become part of our successful coaching pathway and will be able to avail of the many seminars, workshops, resources and support structures which LGFA have in place.  They will be able to share in the accumulated knowledge and experience and to play a very important role as female leader within LGFA.


What qualifications must you currently have?

  • No previous coach education needs to be completed
  • Inter County LGFA Player with at least 3 years playing at adult level
  • Must be currently coaching a team at club, county, school or college level
  • Must be 18+
  • Must be a current member of an LGFA Club


What do you need to do to book your place?

Applications for this course will be approved by an independent committee as this is outside our regular coach education courses. In order to apply for a place we would ask you to please complete the ‘LGFA Inter County Player Level 1 Application Form’ by CLICKING HERE before the deadline date of Friday the 15th of November. 

This is an exciting opportunity and will raise the profile of the many excellent female coaches we have across the country.

We would be delighted to have our players involved and there will be limited places available for this course which will bring female leadership to another level on our Coach Education Pathway.
