Coach Education Evening “A Games Based Approach to Training and Session Design”:
Croom GAA are delighted to host a coaches education evening on Friday 18th of February from Stephen, Peter, and David Lavin from Adare. Last year they launched a new coaching initiative and resource based on GameSense. GameSense was born out of their involvement with Paul Kinnerk in the Limerick Football academy. Paul introduced them to his philosophy and over the past 8 years they have used games as the primary method in teaching skills and tactical awareness in Gaelic Football. Through their involvement with schools they have seen the same approach work just as well with hurling. During their time with the academy they have designed hundreds of games that cover a wide range of themes within the game and they want to make these games accessible in a simple, easy to use manner, so that every coach can see the benefit of using games in their training sessions. They recently launched an excellent coaching website https://gamesensecoaching.com/.
Their visit to Croom will be broken up into 2 groups. The first is aimed at coaches in the U7-U11 age groups and will start at 7pm. The second group is based on those involved in coaching U13-17 and will start around 8.15/8.30pm. This coach education evening is FRE OF CHARGE to all club members and coaches. If you are not currently involved in coaching but have an interest in it, you’re more than welcome to attend. If you have any queries, please contact Stephen Lucey on 0879858726 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
