Coaching masterclass


The focus of this year’s masterclass is on practically using sports science within coaching settings (but will interest various groups) and uses case studies and practitioners using various practical methods. We will also bring in a number of International athletes and GAA stars to help give an athletes perspective.

The topics include:
– Talent Development
– Winning the mental game
– Functional conditioning
– Fitness using small sided games
– Practical performance analysis (using apps etc)
– Getting athletes to eat and drink right (rather than what to eat/drink)

Presenters include:
– Gerry Hussey (Psych with Irish Boxing, swimming and formerly Munster Rugby)
– Eoin Rheinsch (3x Olympian, coach in canoe slalom)
– Darren O’Neill (Irish Boxing Team Capt)
– Stephen Barry (Irish Hockey S and C)
