Louth Coaching & Games are looking to add to their small but committed bunch of volunteer Football & Hurling coaches for 2019.
There are multiple benefits to getting involved with our Academy Squads, with access to Award 2 programmes and specialised workshops to name but a few. The Academy squads are as much about developing coaches as they are players – and have proved to be an effective step on the Coach Development Pathway for those interested in getting into Inter-County management.
Louth Coaching & Games are now accepting expression of interest for positions with our Hurling and Football Squads
