Coach Education & Development Programme Ends on a high for 2019!

December 5th, 2019

Over the past number of weeks Monaghan Coaching & Games Development have held a 2 series Workshop in Cloghan with Monaghan Senior Coaches Peter Donnelly and Conor Laverty. An Award 1 course was also held in Cloghan with 16 coaches from 8 clubs across Monaghan taking part.

Peter Donnelly & Conor Laverty Workshop, Cloghan.

On Saturday the 23rd of November, Monaghan Senior Coaches Peter Donnelly and Conor Laverty delivered 2 workshops to 54 coaches in Cloghan. Peter Donnelly’s theme was defensive play with a focus on skill based activities which led into small sided games and match scenarios. Conor Laverty’s theme was forward play and this included multiple different small sided games and activities that incorporated movement in the forward line and general forward play. This was a great opportunity for coaches to learn and bring new ideas back to their clubs for the forthcoming season. Monaghan Coaching & Games would like to thank Peter and Conor for giving up their time and delivering two excellent workshops and we wish them the best of luck in the season ahead.
