Coach Mentoring & Development Programme

In March 2014 we launched our new coach education programme. The programme was launched in Southern Regional College Lurgan Campus where we worked with over 20 of their sports studies students for a four week period. Through the success of the programme young budding coaches have been integrated into a local football academy and are now continuing their personal development.

Our work continues and in May 2014 we began working with Craigavon intercultural Programme to deliver the programme to their young people. Over 20 participants are currently involved in the programme.

For enquiries or more information on the programme you can call Thomas on 07821579451 or email [email protected]
