Ireland Weightlifting Club Coach Course

In March, Weightlifting Ireland hosted a Club Coach Course with the assistance of the IWF in Dublin, Ireland.

This is the third year that this program is in operation with 15 additional coaches working within the IWF coaching framework in Ireland.  All coaches found this course of great benefit and welcomed the opportunity to revisit technique training and new practices adopted by the IWF.

The course was lectured by Mr Aveenash Pandoo, an IWF Coaching and Research Committee Member.  Furthermore, Ms Rachel Maguire, Sports Ireland Anti-Doping Education Officer also presented on Anti-Doping protocols and the education programs available in Ireland.

The IWF is looking forward to seeing Weightlifting Ireland progressing to the next level of the coaching education.
