Information for Juvenile Volunteers and Coaches
This pages describes some information relevant for new volunteers and coaches in our Juvenile section.
We take safety of our members very seriously and all our volunteers and coaches working with juveniles are Garda vetted. We are working to complete vetting for all coaches, volunteers and committee members even if they do not work with our Juvenile sections.
We prioritise volunteer and coach development. We arrange mentoring for all new volunteers and coaches by pairing them with an experienced volunteer. This ensures excellent support for our new people and accelerated learning.
GCH will also reimburse fees for Athletics Leader and Coach 1 courses for any volunteer that has helped with the club for 6 months, or will commit to helping at the club training sessions for a minimum of one term. Coaching courses are listed here: http://www.athleticsireland.ie/coaching/
Reimbursement of fees for First Aid or other relevant courses is usually available but confirm with the Juvenile Secretary before booking onto such a course.
