Club Coach Development Hubs

What are Club Coach Development Hubs?


Club Coach Development Hubs are a Sport Northern Ireland initiative designed to create learning, development and practice sharing opportunities for coaches operating within club coaching environments.  This is delivered through a quarterly schedule of face-to-face workshop opportunities at regionally located hubs, an annual Children’s Coach Development Week and an online discussion forum. The hub initiative provides an exciting opportunity to discuss key club and children’s coaching concepts and challenges with coaches operating in similar settings across a wide range of sports.



Where do the Club Coach Development Hubs take Place?


To increase accessibility for face-to-face sessions an initial pilot regional club hub has been identified at the following location:


  1. West: Omagh (Omagh Leisure Complex)


This pilot hub is likely to be followed up with a further 4 regional club coach development hubs in the Northern, South Eastern, Eastern and Southern regions in late 2015.


Coaches within the initiative can also get involved in the ‘Club Coach Development Hub Discussion Group’ online at


What Topics & Themes Will Be Included within the Club Coach Development Hubs?


The programme of workshop content will be flexible, led by the demands of the coaches in attendance.  The content for each face-to-face opportunity at each hub location will be based on the direction of discussion at the previous session, ensuring that content is relevant and centred on the coaches attending.  However, workshops will be based on a theme and draw on many of the areas below which have been identified by coaches, governing bodies of sport, Sport Northern Ireland and others as relevant and of interest to coaches operating within club and children’s coaching settings.
