As part of our commitment to coach development in the Midlands we are holding a workshop for youth coaches (u13 to u18) on the exciting topic of Game-Centred Approach to Coaching (GCA) as follows:
Date: Wednesday, October 21st
Times: 19.30 – 21.00
Over the past 18 months, Development Officers from Leinster Rugby and a group of youth coaches from across the Province have been piloting this coaching approach with support from St Mary’s University, Twickenham. We are now in a position to outline our experiences to date and to bring details of this coaching approach to the wider coaching network.
The workshop will address
· What GCA is about
· The benefits/rewards of GCA
· The challenges of GCA
· GCA practice design
and we will demonstrate GCA in practice using local players
Can you please inform ALL coaches of youth teams in your club about this cutting-edge workshop and confirm expected numbers by Monday, October 19th so we can plan for the night.
Should you have any queries about this workshop or GCA please don’t hesitate to contact me
