These modules are currently being updated and are aimed at Foundation and level 1 coaches, athletes and parents. The presentations at this level will remain generic in nature but if we are aware of the specific target group we will tailor them to ensure that examples and case studies are relevant.
Coaching Ireland in conjunction with Lucozade Sport have developed 4 new modules which are aimed at level 3 coaches. The topics of the two hour workshops include:
The 24 Hour Athlete (lifestyle)
Strength and Conditioning
Fuel for Athletes
Hydration for Athletes
These modules will be available from April 2009.
With this in mind we are currently in the process of recruiting new part-time presenters to form a panel for both the original and the new modules. All of our current presenters are Sports Science Graduates and many have additional qualifications but individuals with equivalent qualifications will be considered. All candidates should have experience dealing with athletes, teams and coaches. If you are currently working as a presenter and are interested in delivering these modules or you work with a presenter that you think may be suitable, then please forward CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training for successful candidates with take place on February 21 and 22 at a Dublin location. (Venue to be confirmed). Accommodation and meals will be provided and a set travel allowance will be paid to each participant.
Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday January 30th 2009.
