Leading Galway GAA Coaches, Kevin Walsh, Brian Silke and Sean Conlon have launched GrowCoach, a new online GAA coaching solution designed to empower GAA coaches from under age, club, and elite levels to improve and support coaching skills to build players to perform at the highest levels.
Founded in 2018, GrowCoach has delivered numerous workshops to GAA clubs and county teams throughout Ireland, and in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, GrowCoach is now bringing its exclusive coaching model online with a series of pre-recorded and live webinars aimed directly at coaches of all grades worldwide.
Walsh, Silke, and Conlon offer unique coaching solutions, which are primarily built on the principle of spatial awareness – taking space – making space. Webinars and workshops will focus on both off the ball and on the ball techniques and skills of spatial awareness while also looking at footwork, balance, offensive and defensive play in the modern game.
GrowCoach works with coaches to challenge the environment of the player, introducing smart and incisive coaching techniques which will build and show individual players their crucial roles in taking space and making space
A spokesperson said; "Empowering and upskilling coaches during the current lockdown period and assisting them in preparing for the intensity of the new and forthcoming seasons is the primary aim of GrowCoach."
