CORE Educate is our new educational branch of CORE NI. Using our expertise and the latest research we offer workshops, coaching resources, consultation and club development plans to suit the needs of each coaching group or organisation.

Our workshops are specifically designed for youth coaches, teachers, parents and anyone involved in youth development, they include:-

Developing children through FUN

The ‘Developing Children Through Fun’ workshop is designed to give you an understanding of the methods and techniques, backed by current research and experience, that will make your sessions more child-centered and fun. Resulting in better athletes and, more importantly, better people.

Success v Winning

Youth strength and conditioning

Strength and conditioning is the buzz phrase when it comes to developing youth athletes. This theory and practical based workshop is designed through the latest scientific research and practical experience of working with young athletes. We help you understand how and why to develop each child in a safe and progressive way.

Developing the whole coach

We understand that coaching is a challenging but rewarding job. In any one session, a coach will have too many ‘hats’ including skills coach, physiologist, administrator, teacher, session plan designer and an expert shoe lacer. This workshop will give each coach the extra confidence and understanding to develop each child they are working with.

The CORE Educate programmes are delivered by experts in their fields, Gary Wallace and Richard Gormley.

Gary has 16 years’ experience of coaching children from 4 years old to youth international level. Gary has collaborated with many sporting organisations including IFA, Tyrone GAA, Sport NI, SINI, and Ulster University.

Richard has a wealth of experience of sports development, sport for development and grassroots coaching having worked in the sector for the past 18 years for a national governing body, two local councils, and Ulster University.

These workshops will give you an opportunity to learn, share and network with coaches and teachers involved in a variety of different sports.
