This new programme, which was offered in 2017 / 2018 for the first time is designed to complement the values of the GAA and support its managers and coaches to learn new ways of managing and leading in a sporting context. The programme has been carefully constructed to acknowledge and develop the leadership and management skills required by those involved in team management and leadership roles in a dynamic sporting environment.
Reflecting on the value of the course to both the school and the club, Adam acknowledged the tremendous benefit it will be, to him, in coaching at both school and club level, having had the opportunity to work, throughout the course with some of the most, high profile coaches in the country.
