Coach Development Workshops
On January 4th Monaghan GAA Coaching & Games are hosting two workshops which are suitable for coaches and managers operating between U16 and Senior level.
The first workshop of the evening is focused on the role of the manager, and will be delivered by Seamus ‘Banty’ McEneaney. This workshop will look at the key values of a manager, the importance of a good backroom team and how to get the best out of your players. This workshop is a theory-based session and will be delivered indoors.
Following on from this workshop, we then have Kieran Donnelly (Current Scotstown Senior Manager) delivering a practical on-field session which will focus on developing fitness, skill levels, decision making and game understanding through small-sided games.
The cost for attending these workshops is €5
