  • Coach Education January Round Up

    17/02/2017 Coach Education January Round Up

    The Shuttle Time programme got off to a great start in January 2017 with a course having been run in every province in the first month. The aim of Shuttle Time is to get all children playing badminton in their school, club and college. 

    Our first course of the year was in Coolmine, Blanchardstown on the 8th of January. The course was well attended with people coming from across the province to take part. The next course ran was in Oranmore where one of our Badminton Ireland Academy Cell's is held under academy coaches Shane Wynne and Anthony Conneely.  

    On the 20th of January Karen Brady ran a student teacher Shuttle Time course in University of Limerick where a large group of training teachers took part.

    On the 28th of January we ran two Shuttle Time courses on opposite ends of the country. One was held in Carrigaline Badminton Club led by Tony Robinson alongside Michelle Hayes and the other was held in Avoniel Leisure centre led by Mervyn Fee. Both courses had great attendance with some good feedback coming from the participants. "The course was really enjoyable and useful" - Shuttle Time participant.

    Also in coach education, we had licenced coaches Craig McCourtney and Mark Topping travel to Cardiff and complete the Shuttle Time Tutor/Trainer course. They both achieved the higher Trainer status from this course.

    We have an upcoming level 1 course in Arcdlough Gaa club with the two weekends being the 4th/5th of March and 29th/30th April. For all of our upcoming coaching course click on the link.
