Pictured below are the most recent Award 1 Coach Education Certificates which have been presented to our Underage Coaches. These Coaches are adding to an already fantastic number of qualified Coaches within the Mini Moore’s.

The Award 1 Coach Education course is the second award on the coaching pathway of Gaelic Games. The course is aimed at coaches that have progressed through the Foundation Award and have experience as a coach.

The Award 1 course has been designed to take account of the different playing capacities that exist between children (up to 12 years), youths (age 13 – 18) and Adults (age 19+) and the competencies that a coach is required to display when working with each of the playing populations. Therefore, coaches can specialise in coaching the particular players that they are involved with.

The course covers a number of modules including:

Technical Proficiency

Tactical Prowess

Team Play

Physical Fitness

Playing Facts

Thank you to each and every one of our Coaches for their continued dedication to the future of our great club.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at our Open Night last night.

Special guests on the night were members of the senior men’s football team that won the Leinster Club Championship, Kildare Senior Championship and Division 1 League in 2017 and members of the senior ladies football team that won the Intermediate Championship and Division 2 League in 2017.

There was great excitement as boys and girls got their photographs with the silverware and with their Moorefield heroes. A great night was had by all.

The Moorefield Underage Committee and our Mini Moores wish the Senior team and management the best of luck in their All-Ireland semi-final on Saturday 17th February #Moores2018
