Tyrone Ladies will soon be running a "FUNdamentals" coaching course which is designed specifically for those coaching ladies football. It is recommended that everyone involved with any Ladies teams has completed this course. 

The Ladies ‘FUNdamentals’ course is a mix of theory and practical elements delivered in a fun and dynamic way. All participants are fully involved in the course and the key aim is to be as interactive as possible. The FUNdamentals course comprises of 4 units: Good Coaching Practice, ABC’s of Gaelic Football, Group Management and Child Protection & Coaching a Session

Coaches will look at issues such as planning and implementing training programmes as well as practical coaching and an introduction into the player pathway. These units will provide a good basis for further development for those already coaching ladies football or those who are keen to get involved.

Contact Club Secretary Pat Mc Nulty to book a place...
