Saturday 25th February – Tyrone GAA Centre, Garvaghey

All coach education courses will commence at 9:30am on the Saturday.  Coaches who attend the foundation coaching award course must also complete the child protection workshop, failure to do so will result in them not being certified as a Foundation Award Coach.
