The 18th annual O’Neill’s Ulster GAA Coaching and Games Development Conference was officially launched this week, with the event taking place on Saturday 12th November at the Ulster University, Jordanstown.
The theme of this year’s conference will focus on ‘Playing Your Part in Player Development’ and features a host of practical workshops delivered by coaches from across the family of Gaelic Games, with plenty of interesting takeaways for all involved. Topics range from utilising video analysis, coaching the female athlete, coordinating handball sessions in your club, and specialist skills coaching in both hurling and football.
The event is bookended by keynote addresses from National GAA Head of Coach & Player Development, Martin Kennedy, on the areas of coach education and player development, and former Tipperary All Ireland winning hurling manager Liam Sheedy, who will provide a fascinating insight into setting team and performance culture.
The cost of £25 per delegate includes attendance at the conference and lunch, plus a free O’Neill’s t-shirt. For information on the full itinerary of the O’Neill’s Ulster GAA Coaching Conference and to book your place, visit ulster.gaa.ie/conferences2022
