Athea Coiste na nÓG

We are encouraging all parents to consider completing a coaching FOUNDATION COURSE suitable for  both football  and hurling over the next 3 months. The theory part of the course can be completed online in the participants own time and there will be two live webinars available as well. The practical elements of the course will be completed once the current restrictions have been eased and we can meet the safety requirements to run the practical session in Athea as soon as we can. If anyone, even if not a parent, possibly  transition year students are interested, please let John Hunt 087 7875378 or Sarah Brouder know asap.
