Community Coaching Programme

Waterford Sports Partnership facilitated a Community Coaching Programme for Jobseekers in County Waterford, to enhance employment, volunteering and further education opportunities.

A total of 11 participants completed the programme and received certificates including Eleiko Weightlifting for Sports Club Coach, Level One in Weightlifting Coaching, Disability Inclusion, First Aid, Safeguarding 1, Athletics Leader and Athletics Assistant Training Coach.  On Wednesday 6th of July Waterford Sports Partnership hosted a presentation afternoon for the participants who completed the Community Coaching programme and special guest Emma Jane Clarke from Sport Ireland presented them with their certificates. Funding support was provided at national level from Dormant Accounts through Sport Ireland.

This programme was focused on successfully assisting unemployed people to gain qualifications in sports coaching (Weightlifting & Barbell Instructor and Athletics Coaching qualifications) and other sports coach training thereby providing opportunities to work or volunteer as coaches in the community/sports area. It will provide the participants with practical and theoretical sport-related skills to help find relevant work experience, employment or volunteering opportunities in their local community or provide a platform and motivation for further education opportunities and career progression in the sports sector.

Waterford Sports Partnership would like to thank everyone involved in supporting this programme especially Dunhill Multi Education Centre, Waterford City and County Council, Weightlifting Ireland and Athletics Ireland who supported the programme locally. We would also like to thank all the tutors involved throughout the programme and Dungarvan Crossfit, Waterford Crossfit, Waterford Warriors Strength and Conditioning and The Kingfisher Waterford who hosted our participants on their work experience.
