PJ said : It is a great honour to become head of coaching in the E.B.S.A. I would like to build on the success achieved by Terry and Wayne Griffiths since the EBSA Coaching Academy was started back in 2004. I would like to thank the EBSA Board for having the confidence in selecting me to head the EBSA Coaching Academy.
During each EBSA European, Under 21 and Team Championships PJ and his team of EBSA Coaches will conduct Coaching Zones offering players the opportunity to view their coaching skills and practice some training drills. PJ believes, if the EBSA coaches can train their players in a specific training program then the improvement of the players overall game will maximised.
PJs role as EBSA head of coaching will see him available full time to train coaches to become qualified EBSA coaches in Ireland or travel to another country to hold the Coaching course. To apply to attend an EBSA Coaching Course each Coach must ask their own National Governing Body to write to the EBSA nominating them to attend a course to train and become an EBSA Coach. Only NGB’s nominated coaches can attend the courses.
PJ will also offer students from across Europe and all across the world the opportunity to travel to Ireland or travel to another country to receive professional coaching. All the training sessions will be recorded and each day the student will receive a DVD of the lesson to study more. This will become a great coaching resource for when they arrive back home.
