How to progress your coaching skills in a specific sport?


If you would like to progress your coaching skills or gain further technical knowledge in a chosen sport you should undertake sports specific coaching courses arranged by your National Governing Body (NGB) of Sport.           

Each NGB governs a coach education pathway and organises a number of courses specific to their sport throughout the year. Many NGB’s will advertise any upcoming courses on their website.

A full list of National Governing Body contacts in Ireland are available on the Irish Sports Council website. 
A full list of recognised Governing Bodies of Sport operating in Northern Ireland can be accessed on the SportNI website.

If you know a group of 15 or more people interested in undertaking the same sports specific qualification please contact the Sports Department (Email:, Tel: 018691641)
