Coach education

  • Coach education scheme

    We are committed to the ongoing development of sports clubs, their coaches and volunteers. Our courses focus on the qualifications needed to attain the Belfast Clubmark accreditation. 

    Clubs who are working towards their Clubmark accreditation or have already achieved their award can enjoy a discounted rate for courses. However we also welcome clubs not currently registered for the scheme and clubs outside of the current Belfast boundaries. 

    Please note that places cannot be reserved until full payment has been made.
