Coach Education Calendar
September - December 2015
We are pleased to announce our Coach Education Calendar for September to December 2015. Once again our calendar includes a mix of national governing body coaching course and continued professional development courses. For more information on our Coach Education Calendar, please click here. If you would like to book a place on any of our courses, please click here.
This year our calendar will include a Coaches Conference and Competition & Event Management Training, which have been designed to help the region prepare for the new advancement cycle starting in 2015-16. For more detailed information on these sessions, please see below.
This will be the third Coaches Conference hosted in the Ulster Region since 2012. This year the Coaches Conference will focus on 'A New Cycle' as the region prepares to enter the 2016-2019 Special Olympics Ireland Advancement Cycle. The conference has been designed to arm club volunteers with all the information they need to guide athletes through the cycle with informed decisions. We would, therefore, encourage all head coaches and assistant coaches within clubs to attend the conference.

Competition & Event Management Training
We are currently undertaking a large recruitment drive across the region to increase the number of volunteers available to help us plan and manage our Area & Regional Events. Once recruited, we plan to host a large one off training day to introduce new volunteers to the Special Olympics Ireland competition & event management planning process. As part of our recruitment drive, we would like to encourage all currently registered volunteers with project management skills to consider taking on an event management role within the next cycle.
