Benchmarking 2020 Vision Winners Announced

The Rebel Óg Coaching Benchmarking 2020 Vision winners have been announced.

Winners are divided in to three categories with the top clubs receiving the “Gold” accolade and the Silver and Bronze being awarded based on criteria set out at the start of each year.

The criteria is designed to point clubs in the direction of coaching and games best practice to help them improve playing standards and increase participation at player and mentor level.

2017 has seen the highest ever number of applications with 106 clubs applying for accreditation.

Games Manager, Kevin O Callaghan says “it shows the great work going on in our clubs throughout the county and all our club Coaching Officers deserve huge credit for the effort they put in to steering their clubs to achieve accreditation. Our GDA’s also deserve immense credit for the work they do in supporting the clubs and  Coaching Officers throughout the county. I would like to congratulate all clubs on their accreditation and would encourage clubs to strive towards achieving the Gold standard by 2020 or before it.”

Clubs who have been successful are invited to attend a workshop on Saturday next February 24th in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The clubs will receive their awards on the day and the club coaches will be treated to 3 workshops.

Jason Ryan (Football), Kieran Kingston (Hurling) and Dr Ed Coughlan (Skills Acquisition) will work with coaches and demonstrate models of best practice that coaches can take back to their own club players for the year ahead.

Details of the winners are below.

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 2017. 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. Following a review by the GDAs and games manager, the results for 2017 are attached. The accredited clubs will be invited to a workshop in February 2018 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 Shortly. 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.
