Macroom FC places huge emphasis on coaching standards within our club and we currently have over 70 coaches who are actively involved in promoting the sport. Garda Vetting is mandatory as is successful participation in an FAI Safeguarding course which is recognised by Sport Ireland. Coach education is another important pillar. FAI coaching seminars are regularly held at our club or online. These courses are delivered by regional FAI coaching officers and new coaches typically begin with the FAI PDP (Player Development Plan) Level 1. Progression to level 2 and 3 is encouraged as Macroom FC strive to have an excellent standard of coaching throughout our club. It is important to say that Macroom FC would emphasise a background in football, while welcome, is absolutely not necessary. As our club is constantly evolving, we feel strongly that anyone willing to volunteer is a huge asset and every person has experiences which can assist our club and it’s existing volunteers.
