Award 1 Coaching Course

Longford GAA Gaelic Football Award 1 Coaching Course

This is a hugely important course due to the fact that all adult club teams MUST have an Award 1 coach involved since the start of 2016 and by the start of 2018 all adult Club Head Coaches/Managers MUST be Award 1 qualified so we believe that this course will attract a lot of interest and we expect it to fill up quickly

Award 1 Youth/Adult

  • This course is aimed at coaches of teams from U13 up to and including adults and coaches wishing to attend must hold the Foundation Award for at least the last 12 months.
