Coach Development Officer Declan O’Brien held a Mini Refresher Course in Greystones RFC last week for all their Mini coaches…

With the emphasis on coaching the key factors of basic skills such as handling, evasion and tackling were taught through modified and fun games.

There was also a brief presentation on the IRFU Long Term Player Development and the importance of Physical Literacy.

All the coaches went away with a booklet full of coaching tips, fun games and sample sessions for stage 1 the Fundamental Stage of the Coaching pathway.

Thanks to Aidan Higgins and Declan Lynch, joint Youth Coordinators in Greystones, for their assistance on the night.
