- M.N.A Programme aims to increase the number of women coaching
- Programme is in partnership with Sport Ireland’s Women in Sport Policy
- Applications now open for 100 Clubs to take part in 2022
The Camogie Association are delighted to launch the third year of our female coaching and mentorship initiative, the M.N.A Programme, in partnership with Sport Ireland’s Women in Sport Policy.
The M.N.A Programme primarily looks at the development of female Mentors and Coaches within Clubs around the country and the 2022 programme will offer places to 100 Clubs to take part.
The M.N.A Programme will act as an important step in assisting Clubs to ensure the retention of players away from the playing field and the recruitment of females and that they will pass on their knowledge and experience to future players through coaching. The role which women can play in passing on their intrinsic knowledge of the game to young players in particular is a key reason behind this programme and the part which they can play as positive role models for young players.
Participating Clubs will be required to nominate one female Mentor who will be upskilled across a wide range of areas including communications, mentoring and volunteer development.
M.N.A Mentor Training will be held:
- 26th February – in person at one of four locations around the country.
M.N.A Mentors must complete all training in order to proceed with the programme.
The programme is seen as a model for Clubs of how to develop a pathway to recruit, develop, retain, and support females within the Club on their journey as coaches or in other volunteer roles.
The application process for Clubs to apply to take part in the 2022 M.N.A Programme is now open until close of business on Monday January 24th 2022.
