Many thanks to coaches and officers at all levels, as well as our own GDAs, for organising and supporting the numerous activities organised under the Rebel Óg Coaching banner in 2016.
A particular word of thanks to all club coaching officers who work so hard to improve coaching standards and structures in their clubs throughout the county.
The list of clubs being recognised is attached below.
This five year programme was launched in the spring of 2015 and provide a template for best practice in coaching, promoting maximum participation and optimal playing standards in juvenile clubs throughout Cork city and county. The programme includes minimum requirements for entry, with subsequent progression to Bronze, Silver or Gold targets, which clubs would strive to achieve with the assistance of their local GDA.
Following a review by the GDAs and games manager, the results for 2016 are attached.
- 71 submissions from a total of 117 entries at the start of the 2016
- An increase of 6 gold clubs in 2015 to 18 in 2016 demonstrating the huge strides clubs are making.
- 34 clubs are accredited at Silver and 16 clubs at Bronze.
- 68 clubs received accreditation from the 71 submissions made.
- The remaining 46 clubs failed to make an end of year submission.
The accredited clubs will be invited to a workshop in February 2017 to receive their awards and get a chance to share ideas with other clubs and coaches. This will be exclusively for Benchmarking Clubs and details of same will be furnished in January.
It is planned to make the Gold status a realistic target for all clubs by 2020, so there is plenty of time for all clubs to progress. Details on the 2017 programme will be circulated in January. Details of the 2016 programme are attached for reference purposes. click here – http://rebelogcoaching.com/benchmarking-2020/
I wish you all a happy Christmas and look forward to continued success in 2017 and beyond.
