Coaching Course Success
The tentacles of Touch continues to spread all over Ireland, as evidenced by the success of the recent Ireland Touch Association (ITA) coaching course. Sixteen coaches gained their Federation of International Touch coach accreditation at the course in Dublin. The coaches represented touch clubs from Sandymount (Dublin), Donnybrook (Dublin) Marlay Park Tipsters (Dublin), Wicklow and Belfast. Greystones Rugby Club (Wicklow) and Shannon Rugby Club (Liimerick) attended the course with the intention of introducing touch into the club to increase participation and provide additional activities for members.
