Award 2 Football Youth/Adult Course in October 2023

August 17th, 2023

Ulster GAA will be delivering an Award 2 Football Youth/Adult Course in October 2023.

The Award 2 Coach Education course is the third award on the coaching pathway of Gaelic Games. Only coaches who have attained the Foundation and Award One coaching qualifications can enrol for the Award Two course.

The Award Two Youth/Adult course has been developed to take account of the different playing capacities that exist at youth (age 13 – 18) and adult (age 19+) levels, and the competencies that a coach is required to display when working with each of these playing populations. The course will focus on the further development of how and what to coach based on the playing group that you are involved with but also to look further at the integration of key areas that contribute to performance. The course will also expose coaches to the OTú model to do a personal, player and team analysis
