After some time in the planning and with 300 assistant coaches on our books the Angling Council were pleased to deliver the first part of the two-part Level 1 Coach programme to certify as an Angling Coach in Ireland.
A selected panel of game, coarse and sea anglers came together for the first module delivered at Sports HQ in Blanchardstown on 6th February.
The Angling Council would like to acknowledge the help from Coaching Ireland with whom the programme was created and benchmarked with the likes of thee GAA, FAI, IRFU and up to 60 other sports. With particular thanks to Fiona Larkin and Liam Morgan for their continued support and invaluable advice. To Declan O’Leary who with many of the founding members of the Angling Council of Ireland put the entire concept of an Angling Coach pathway for Ireland together and made it a reality.
Details of how you too can gain this coaching qualification will be rolled out to our member federations soon.
