High Performance Coaching

Role of Sport Ireland Coaching in High Performance

Sport Ireland Coaching facilitate High Performance coaching in three primary ways: 

  1. Working directly with NGBs to develop their Advanced Coaching programmes 

  2. Providing training for Coach Developers working with High Performance coaches 

  3. Designing and delivering programmes that meet the needs of multiple High Performance coaches and/or NGBs in a multi-sport setting. 

The very essence of High Performance coaching, coaches operating at the highest levels with those who have potential to achieve on the biggest stages, means that the training and support offered by Sport Ireland Coaching is tailored to situations and environments as they arise.  Each NGB has different requirements and this is reflected in the programmes and support offered.
