Council Launches What’s Your Game? Club and Coach Education Programme promoting excellence in local sport

Published: 1st December 2017

A sports education initiative, which aims to promote excellence in local sports, was officially launched today by the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Cllr Stephen McCann.

The ‘What’s Your Game?’ Club and Coach Education Programme, delivered and funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, provides opportunities for those involved in sport in the district to gain coach education.

Speaking at the launch of the ‘What’s Your Game?’ programme, the Council Chairman, Councillor McCann said;

“Fermanagh and Omagh District Council recognises and appreciates the contribution of our sports clubs, coaches, leaders, teachers and athletes and is pleased to support their development and continuous improvement by investing in the ‘What’s Your Game?’ programme.

The programme is a wonderful opportunity for all those involved in sport to avail of high quality sports training and coaching at a reduced cost. Clubs and organisations can also apply to the Council for financial assistance to attend the courses available through the programme, helping to further reduce the cost of participation and ensuring as many people as possible can benefit from the programme.”

Courses available on the ‘What’s Your Game?’ Club and Coach Education Programme are beneficial to junior sports clubs in helping them to achieve Clubmark NI status – a recognised standard which demonstrates a club has achieved a level of quality in the areas of management, coaching and safety.

The ‘What’s Your Game’ programme also includes a range of expert master classes focussing on such areas as disability training and strength and conditioning for athletes keen to improve their personal performance. Being able to offer such expert coaching has the added bonus of attracting new members to clubs. These masterclasses will be delivered in partnership with the North West Coaching Network.

The ‘What’s Your Game?’ programme and application forms are available from the Council’s website and reception at Omagh Leisure Complex, The Grange and the Public Services Centre, Omagh; Fermanagh Lakeland Forum and the Townhall, Enniskillen; Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea, and the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown.
