Camogie is offering students the opportunity to become qualified Camogie foundation coaches and pursue their Gaisce Bronze Award under the æCommunity involvement’ or Physical recreation section. We have selected your county as one of four pilot counties in which to run this initiative in 2009/10.
The following is how we will roll out the scheme to interested students, teachers and schools
v A Camogie foundation coaching course will be advertised to all students in senior cycle in the schools in the pilot counties.
v The course will be run on a chosen Saturday in a central venue in each county
v Weeks 1 -6: Qualified students go back in to school and coach 1st years at lunch time on a designated day
v Week 7: Students bring their team to a central venue and play 7-a-side games against other schools in the same scheme
v Week 8-12: Coaching at lunchtime
v Week 13: +can awards (skills challenge for 1st years) or a second seven a side blitz.
The Camogie Foundation Coaching Course is an accredited course developed with Coaching Ireland and launched in March 2009. It is an up to date coaching resource that equips the coach with camogie skills knowledge and the confidence to deliver coaching to young camogie players.
We are delighted to be a partner with Gaisce in providing students with the opportunity to achieve such a prestigious award. Let us in the Camogie Association help you help your students achieve this prestigious National Challenge Award and in return help us expose more young girls to the wonderful sport of Camogie.
