Community Coaching Programme – Celbridge

Kildare Sports Partnership is currently organising a ‘Community Coaching Programme’, which will commence on Tuesday April 25th in the Mill, Celbridge. The course will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week from 10 am- 1pm for a 14 week period.

Originally put in place for Jobseekers, we now have opened the course to anyone who has an interest in sport/physical activity or who generally wants to upskill themselves to improve their job, education or volunteer opportunities.

In recent times many parents who have time after dropping the children to school have completed the programme and from the knowledge acquired have gone on to coach or volunteer in their communities while other participants have gone on to further education or employment.

To register or for further details at email .

Alternatively contact Eddie Hennessy, Sports Administrator, Kildare Sports Partnership, Level 5, Aras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co Kildare. Tel: 045 980546.
