The Ulster Council Coach Education Programme continues to evolve as we move into autumn/spring 2011/12.
Ulster GAA has just completed an Award 2 Football Youth & Adult Course in St Patrick’s College, Armagh. This course was run over 2 consecutive weekends from Friday to Sunday. The quality of the coaches and the course content was excellent and the coaches were challenged throughout.
The course was attended by 30 coaches from Armagh, Cavan, Monaghan, Tyrone, Down, Antrim and Derry.
