Leinster Coaches Clinic July 2015

Leinster Water Polo, in association with our partners at Swim Ireland and Ireland Water Polo held our inaugural Water Polo Coaches Clinic featuring renowned Irish water polo player and Coach Gary O'Brien over the weekend of July 10-12th 2015.


This was a hugely successful weekend with more than thirty coaches from Leinster, Ulster and Connacht attending classroom sessions at Swim Ireland HQ as well as a skills and techniques demonstration and three well-attended practical coaching demonstration sessions at the National Aquatic Centre.


Regarding CPD points: Amanda from Swim Ireland has taken the sign-in sheets from the four sessions at the Coaches Clinic and accredited CPD points (3 per session) to each attendee. The CPD information should be associated with your profile when you call to renew your coaching/teaching credential.


Full details and some photographs are available on our Coaches Clinic 2015 page
