The first ever GAA Award 1 Coach Education course to be held in France took place in Vannes, Brittany. 25 coaches from all over France traveled to the north west of France to gain their accreditation. Gerard O’Connor flew over from Ireland to give the training course to those present over the weekend. The 25 coaches learned an enormous amount from the course and will take what they have learned back to their respective clubs. In addition to this, 3 of France’s most experienced coaches also took tutor training so that they will be able to give Award 1 Coaching courses without the need of a visiting tutor. This course is another step to ensure that the incredible levels of growth in France continue for many years to come.
