 The NECSL ETP committee are pleased to announce that two coaching workshops will take place this month which will be free of charge to all coaches and we would be delighted to see as many coaches as possible in attendance.

Both sessions will take place at St. Patricks Classic School, Navan.

Former FAI International Coach and FAI Coach Educator and Tutor Pauric Nicholson will run his new Awarness Workshop for all coaches from 6:30pm – 7:30pm. Pauric will be working with the NECSL U-14 ETP squad. There will be a theory session with Pauric from 6:30pm to 7:15pm and then Pauric will work with players on the pitch from 7:15pm – 9:00pm. We will finish with a review after the session which will take no longer than 30 minutes.

The workshop is based on developing awareness in young players and the sessions on the pitch will be valid for all age groups. The workshop is free of charge and coaches will receive all the handouts on the night, pre-registration is essential so please advise Sandra McAuley by emailing sandramcauley@gmail.com if you are going to attend.

 The workshop will be a great chance for coaches to see the International Head Coach in action and give coaches ideas on how to set-up up their teams to play the attractive, attacking football we all want to see our young players playing. The workshop is free of charge and coaches will receive all the handouts on the night, pre-registration is essential so please advise Sandra McAuley by emailing sandramcauley@gmail.com if you are going to attend.

 In order for us to keep providing these workshops we need to see that clubs are utilising the opportunities provided so please ensure you pass this on to all your club coaches and encourage them to attend these free courses. They are open to coaches working at all ages from U-6 right to Seniors.
