Sports Coach Development Programme

Monaghan Sports Partnership is excited to launch its first sports coach development programme for sports coaches (from any sport), teachers, parents or interested volunteers aged 16 or over who work with juveniles. This programme uses core fundamental gymnastic skills & training techniques to build the complete athlete or player.  The GymEDGE programme was developed in partnership with the Ulster Sports Academy at the University of Ulster & supported by the Irish Sports Council & Coaching Ireland.  It will take place on Saturday 1st March 2014 (10am – 4pm) in Ballybay Recreation Centre at a price of €40 pp.  The programme consists of a series of workshops being run over the day looking at core fundamental gymnastic skills and training techniques including;

  • Fundamental Movement Skills: Practical based, focusing on the benefits of gymnastics for all sports
  • Flexibility & Stretching: Dynamic & developmental stretching ideas, techniques & training programmes
  • Physical Preparation & Conditioning: Gymnastic based full body conditioning exercises, techniques & training programmes.

It is internationally recognised that the training elements of gymnastics can provide players/athletes key skills that can aid other sports in athlete development.  Participants receive a certificate of attendance from Gymnastics Ireland.
