Leinster coaches attend ‘Coach Development Workshops’

Wed, May 6, 2009 11:34 AM

Twenty of Leinster's leading coaches recently took part in the delivery of six 'Coach Development Workshops' run over three weekends in March and April. The courses were designed to further educate the union's coaches and keeping them up to date with modern coaching methods/techniques. The workshop topics were as follows:

• Developing batters
• Using video when working with batters
• Working with bowlers & using video cameras
• Working in the nets
• Working with fielders & keepers
• Coaching a team

As it was their first delivery of these workshops Leinster invited tutors Cookie Patel and John Huband over from England to deliver. The workshops proved to be a huge success with all the participants gaining valuable coaching knowledge and ideas. A lot of video analysis work was covered, in particular when working with young batters and bowlers. It is hoped the coaches can pass on this knowledge to the national, provincial and club/school team players they will be working with this summer.

Emma Beamish (Merrion)
