Tri Leader Course Derry 12 members from the North West Triathlon Club completed Triathlon Ireland's new TRI-Leader course in Derry on Sunday. This was the 2nd course held in the North and it was great to see the enthusiasm and motivation a to learn from the participants .The Tri Leader is now the first step on the coaching ladder and is a pre requisite to the new Level 1 which will launch towards the end of the year. This course however is not just for those who wish to continue on to become coaches but also for club members and parents of junior club members who wish to help out at training sessions or events. The course covers topics such as health and safety at sessions, child welfare, practical workshops on how to help a coach during a session and basic rules of the sport. Michael Black and Barry Smyth were being assessed by Coaching Ireland & Triathlon Ireland on the path to becoming New Tutors and joining the rank's of some of the best Tutors in Ireland. The Coaching team would like to wish them all every success in the weeks , months and years ahead. We want to thank the parents, coaches and volunteers that attended the course and hope they can now go back to their club and continue the development work they have been doing over the past number of months. If your club has a group who are interested in becoming Tri Leaders, TI will, where possible, provide a course specifically for your club members. Courses will be run with a minimum of 8 attendees. Cost is €60 pp. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
