GAA Coach Webinar Series 2020
To help coaches through this difficult period, the GAA, An Cumann Camogaíochta and the LGFA created a series of coach development sessions to take place over the coming weeks. The sessions ran every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm, beginning on Thursday, March 26th 2020.
Since we have now moved to a new phase of the reopening of Gaelic games, the live sessions have been completed.
Over 14 weeks, we have held a total of 27 separate sessions. Some of the sessions were live Questions and Answers sessions with a coach.
Every Thursday we had a live webinar presented by a coach or coach developer.
Over the course of the 14 weeks, we had in excess of 19,000 live participants. Over the same time, we had almost 40,000 views Youtube.
