The Coaching Bubble Podcast Season 3 will begin next Monday September 7th at 5pm with another exciting series of Coaching content to come over the following 12 weeks from some of the foremost experts in Irish coaching.
The idea for the podcast started as a conversation. The dialogue revolved around how to get high quality, relevant information to coaches. How could we get those nuggets of wisdom from the top coaches, and the top coach educators, to the coaches on the ground? Is there a way to simplify these messages so that even the least experienced coaches could take away some learnings? Through these discussions, the Coaching Bubble Podcast was born.
What makes the Coaching Bubble different to other podcasts is that we try to make everything relatable to grassroots coaches. The host of the show, Stephen Behan, has plenty of experience as a coach himself. Stephen was a Games Promotion Officer for Dublin GAA for nearly a decade, has an MSc in Coaching and Exercise Science, and has completed his PhD in Dublin City University. His area of research revolves around physical literacy, which is defined as the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.
We are delighted to be back with Season 3. The guests will vary across sports, with representatives from Camogie, GAA, LGFA, hockey, soccer, martial arts, rugby, athletics and more. We also have experts in the areas of performance analysis, strength and conditioning, coaching science and authors. We are hoping that this broad range of sports and expertise will expose our listeners to a wide array of knowledge and experiences that they may be able to relate in some way to their own coaching. Despite the wide range of guests, it is remarkable how many of these stories are so similar. It seems, as with many things in life, that mastering the basics is a foundation that many of the top coaches build upon.
The main aim of the show is to help people along their coaching journey, whether they are just starting out with kids, or working with older age groups, or even those that are trying to take the next step into a high performing environment. We hope that we have achieved that up to now, and we look forward to bringing you more high-quality guests in Season 3.
What started as a conversation, has resulted in the Coaching Bubble podcast reaching over 35000 listens from Season 1 and Season 2.
The Coaching Bubble Podcast is available, free of charge, to anyone who wants to learn. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our host Stephen Behan and all of our guests who give up their time freely to be on the show.
