TriHeroes - Coaches Needed

2017-03-10 TriHeroes-64

Would you like to help us deliver the hugely successful TriHeroes programme? 
We're looking for enthusiastic coaches for the in 2017/18 school term.

Background

Triathlon Ireland's nationwide schools triathlon was launched in September 2016 and is designed to help schools and teachers introduce triathlon activities to pupils whilst supporting the needs of the school to deliver the necessary Physical Education progression for all pupils. 

The programme teaches the basics of lifelong skills in swimming, cycling and running and brings them together in a manner which will inspire, motivate and challenge children.

Tri-Heroes is fun, varied, stimulating and suitable for all pupils, whether as part of the curriculum or as an after school activity.

Each student will get the chance to take part in a mini-triathlon at the end of the 4 week coaching programme, giving them a sense of accomplishment and allowing them participate in a safe and positive environment.

2017/18 School Term

As part of the build up to the launch in September we are looking for coaches across the country who would be interested in delivering these school based sessions in their area to a select number of schools.

The majority of the session will run during school hours or as part of an after schools programme so each coach must be available to deliver the coaching sessions during these hours.

Also the coach would need to have completed at least a Tri-Leader course (or equivalent sports related introductory course) and have all safe guarding requirements (Garda vetting/Access NI, Code of conduct, Safeguard 1 course complete).

Training will be provided to all coaches prior to the first role out in September. This is a great opportunity to gain some practical coaching experience and be part of a new and innovative triathlon schools programme.

Training for interested coaches will take place on the 26th August at 10am until 4pm at the Sportslink, Furry Road, Santry, Dublin. The 1 day training course will cost €20 and a limited amount of places are available. There will be a short competency assessment at the end of the day and attendance at the course does not guarantee future coaching work in the programme.
