Everyone is trying to get that little edge over their competitors and coaches are hungry for information and coaching tips to stay ahead of their opponents. The O’Neill’s Ulster GAA Coaching Conference is always a focal point for the best coaches in Ulster and indeed coaches throughout Ireland and Britain.
The theme for this year’s conference is ’20/20 Vision for 2020 Clubs’ and will have a particular resonance with those coaches working within schools, clubs, academies and county squads in urban settings.
The morning and early afternoon sessions will include 12 workshops which will be followed by keynote speakers including advisor to the Sports Institute NI (SINI), Dr. Mario Bizzini, who will speak about the new Activate GAA warm up.
Mario’s, talk will be of particular interest given that the GAA are currently completing the production of a 15+ warm up resource in conjunction with the SINI, which will be the subject of an earlier workshop with renowned sports physiotherapist, Dr. Phil Glasgow.
This year’s Conference will break with tradition as we will be hosted, for the first time, by the Hilton Hotel, Templepatrick, Co. Antrim. The location close to the M2 Motorway and 10 miles north of Belfast should prove popular due to its ease of access.
