B. Connacht GAA – S&C Course (F/H)
This course has been developed in order to give coaches an opportunity to gain greater knowledge in the area of physical fitness, or as it has become more commonly known in recent years as strength and conditioning. It allows coaches to increase their understanding of the many aspects associated with strength and conditioning and to be able to safely and correctly implement programs designed from the Connacht GAA Strength and Conditioning staff. A follow on course which is in the process of being developed will allow coaches to develop and safely implement programs.
The first pilot of the course was rolled out in January 2015 with a group of 25 academy coaches from each of the provincial counties in both hurling and football. This course was reviewed and has since been ran with another group of academy coaches and one group of club coaches from each of the 5 provincial counties.
The course is the first of its kind in the GAA in terms of Strength and Conditioning. All the theoretical learning is provided on-line through a specially designed interactive SCORM used through the new GAA e-learning website. This is allowing us to make the most of the coaches’ time and moving away from the traditional gathering to watch a tutor give presentations. The theory side of the course can be done through the GAA e-learning portal at any stage over the designated period of time which can accommodate coach’s personal schedules. For the practical side of the course the coaches come together for practical’s on the various modules and group led discussion. Once the process has been completed the coach must demonstrate competency in the areas covered during the practical sessions
1. Demands of Gaelic Games (Football and Hurling)
2. Basic Science Theory of Gaelic Games
3. Fitness Testing and Functional Assessment
4. Warm Up and The Recovery Process
5. Conditioning for Gaelic Games
6. Supervision of a Body Weight Resistance Training Program
• Coaches must have completed an Award 1 coaching course
• Must be coaching in their own club
If interested in taking course please contact John Donnellan (086-0402081) on Monday 27 Aug.
Our Junior camogie team take on Tulsk in the County Junior Camogie ‘B’ final on Tuesday evening in Lisnamult; throw-in at 8pm. Since Tulsk are missing some players it has been agreed that the final will be a 12-a-side game.
The team has been training since early May and has performed well in all Championship games. The girls also benefited from a number of challenge matches along the way so are well prepared for this final.
All support would be appreciated if you could come along.
The girls unfortunately lost out to Padraig Pearses during the week in their second championship game. Their next game will be on Wednesday evening this week; details will be confirmed later.
Jamesie O'Connor Camogie:
Many thanks to Riona McGuinness for arranging for Jamesie O Connor to take a session with our U16, Minor and Junior players last Saturday morning in Lisnamult. Jamesie won two All-Ireland Senior Hurling medals with Clare when they made their breakthrough in the ‘90s and he also won a Club Senior Hurling All-Ireland medal with his Club Door-Barefield. Many thanks to Jamesie for attending and imparting some of his knowledge and experience during the hour and a bit he spent with our players; 28 of whom turned up.
The morning was glorious and Jamesie put the girls through their paces, focusing on their first touch, their footwork and their reading of the game. He explained that hurling/camogie has basic skills and the top teams in the country are doing the same basic skills in their training as the girls are doing in the Gaels. The feedback suggests that the players really enjoyed this session and Jamesie left them all by saying “the skill level is there; its just vital to keep practicing”.
