Coaching is a critically important aspect of the triathlon experience, and one that has been identified and earmarked for improvement within the current Triathlon Ireland Strategic Plan. We will also be announcing shortly the dates of our Level 2 Courses following on from the successful Pilot Level 2 Course held in Limerick in Dec 2011. You can register interest for this course at email@example.com
Triathlon Ireland is fortunate to have 5 accredited tutors who will be teaching the Level 1 Coaching Courses. They are Oliver Harkin, Lynne Algar, Sebastien Locteau, Eamonn Tilley and Jamie Bray.
As an incentive to promote and increase the number of Level One coaches in TI's affiliated clubs, the following price structure has been determined:
