GAA Coach Webinar Series 2020

To help coaches through this difficult period, the GAA, An Cumann Camogaíochta and the LGFA have created a series of coach development sessions to take place over the coming weeks. The sessions will run every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm, beginning this Thursday, March 26th.

The sessions will be along two separate formats. Every Tuesday there will be a live Questions and Answers session with a coach. Any participants in the Q and A will have an opportunity to view the coach delivering a session from the GAA Games Development Conference over the last couple of years and submit their questions via twitter for the coach to answer live.

Every Thursday there will be a live webinar presented by a coach or coach developer. The webinar will be a 30 minute presentation followed by a live Q and A with the presenter.

The first schedule of sessions is listed below:

All sessions will be advertised through the GAA Learning site – learning.gaa.ie and across all of the social media channels.

We are using Microsoft Teams to host the event. You can access Teams through your web browser, or you can download the Teams application onto your device. Any participants wishing to register for the session, please complete the form below.
