Sport Ireland - Coaching Children

Creating good coaching children practices at an early stage will result in a higher proportion of children gaining both movement skills and love of activity that we hope will remain with them in to their teenage and adult years.

Special Olympics Ireland's Young Athletes coach training is based on this model and the course is beneficial to all who are coaching children. All participants can download a certificate on completion.
