Irish Squash Coaching Qualifications
Coaching is a rewarding and fun way to be involved with Squash – coaching helps improve player enjoyment as well as their performance in the game. Newcomers can be introduced to a fantastic new sport that will keep them fit and healthy for life. Full time professional coaching is also financial rewarding if organised well – and it can provide a good business with flexible hours and good holidays.
Are you interested in Coaching Squash in your club or community? Are you an existing coach with a previous qualification? Are you a competent Squash Player? If you feel you would like to work with beginners and club players as a Squash Coach – Irish Squash run a number of coach development programs that train you to become a professional squash coach. .
Irish Squash Club Coaching course – Foundation coaching for beginners and Club players
Irish Squash Development Coaches course – Development coaching for Club players and above
Irish Squash courses are certified by Coaching Ireland and fit on the Irish and European coach education framework. Information about the Coaching Development Programme for Ireland (CDPI) can be found here on the Coaching Ireland website. Club Coach is a CDPI Level 1 and the Development Coaches course is a CDPI Level 2. These courses are also designed to complement the UKCC coaching qualifications and are equivalent through this framework. The CDPI Level 1 courses are equivalent to UKCC Level 2 and the CDPI Level 2 course is equivalent to UKCC Level 3.
