The Second and final day of RIBSA level 1 Coaching Ireland Education Course was held in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club in Carlow on Sunday 7th of July.
The four new Level 1 RIBSA coaches who completed successfully the course are Stephen Walsh from Carrick on Suir, Murt Rossiter from Breakers SC Gorey, Finbarr Ruane from Crossguns SC Dublin and Sandra Bryan from Breakers SC Gorey who becomes the first lady Level 1 RIBSA Snooker Coach.
The two day training course was for Coaches who have already completed the Intro Level course and this course covered the skills in helping the coaches to start training players to a level 1 standard.
The next step for the four coaches is to attend a sport partnership 3 hr basic awareness course and a two night Children’s Officer Course organised by their local sports authority through the Sports Council. All the coaches will finally need to be Garda vetted before being presented with their Level 1 Accreditation Certificate. Only then will they have their details on our Web Site as Level 1 Coaches.
The overall course was given by PJ Nolan on the ( Role Of Coaches + Playing Techniques ) and Neil Shanahan ( Rules of the Game ). The course ran from 10am to 6pm on both days.
