Official TFK GAA Coaches Corner


#1

Seems to be a fair few lads on here involved with teams at various levels.
This will now be the official home of the coaches on TFK to share resources, plans and ideas.

This year I’ll be back involved with the u/12 and Junior B sides.

Yes, I’ve found @Gman to be fairly open to debate

this crowd have a lot of drills - http://www.gaelicfootballdrills.com/
they want money for them, but I was on their mailing list a while back and must have got over 200 of their drills emailed out anyway.

this book on the Dublin site above is handy enough too

@glasagusban has come through one of the most successful underage coaching structures in Limerick. Surely his input would be invaluable?

as long as he had all his coaching books and match programs in front of him, I’m sure there’d be no issue

U 12’s - Run the shit out of them
Junior B - All sessions should take place in local pub


#9

Have you any gaa coaching courses done. Was hoping to complete level two this year but that has gone by the way side with the relocation and job change

Have you both the foundation & level 1 done?
I’ve nothing done yet but I think we are joining up with another club to get both the foundation and level 1 done in-house over the next few months

Plenty of tyres for the U-12’s.
The Junior B’s will bring their own…

Yeah, did both. They ate fairly straight forward. Think the foundation was done over a weekend and the level one over two weekends but if you have played to an adult level you would know the most of it through common sense. Gets far more intense for level two and involves continuous assessment over a few months and looks to be far more in depth


#13

I’ve the u-16s this year. Junior Cert pressures have already had an impact on pre-season. Have done a lot of interval running and kicking so far in another location as found last year cramped space on shared all weather meant we could only really do handpassing games to the detriment of our first few league games.

Just to let you know TS I’m moving on to coach u-14s this year with George.

where did you do the level 1 chewy? When I did mine it was 2 nights for 6 weeks. The GAA are rolling out a new level 2 template and there was a Leinster course completed last year. It was 5 full Saturdays spread out over a couple of months and as you say, was on assessment and video analysis and having to actually do work and submit it.


#18

Ah lads, it is not about drills. A skill and a related game tactic for each session ( can repeat) and practice practice practice puckout & kickout startegy

Did it in the Uk with the CDAs over there. Was two Friday nights 6pm to 10:30pm and two full Saturdays 9am to 6 pm give or take. Friday nights were all theory while Saturdays were 2/3 practical and 1/3 theory
