Award 1 Youth/Adult Hurling  Coaching Course


The Award 1 Coach Education course is the second award on the coaching pathway of Gaelic Games. The course is aimed at coaches that have progressed through the Foundation Award and have experience as a coach.

The Award 1 course has been designed to take account of the different playing capacities that exist between youths (age 13 – 18) and Adults (age 19+) and the competencies that a coach is required to display when working with each of the playing populations.

The course covers a number of key modules including:

  • Technical Proficiency
  • Tactical Prowess
  • Team Play
  • Physical Fitness
  • Playing Facts
  • Psychological Focus
  • Communication

The focus of the course is the further development of the ‘How to Coach’ skills by placing the participant in situations that they will face as coaches – the organisation of games activities, activities to develop skill and activities to develop the various aspects of physical fitness.
