UCFL Coaching Course – National D Licence
05/01/2019: reminder re January course

An email was sent to all clubs prior to Christmas in connection with a specialised coaching course for UCFL members leading to the award of a National D licence on successful completion. The email asked all club secretaries to inform their members of this course and to let the UCFL know how many, if any, are interested. We have had a number of replies and have been liaising with the FAI coaches who are making preparations to hold the course.

The proposal from the FAI is to hold the course over 3 days towards the end of January 2020. The course will begin on Friday evening, Jan 24 and continue over the Saturday and Sunday, Jan 25 & 26.

Any UCFL players/coaches who may be interested but have not yet informed the UCFL, are encouraged to contact their club secretaries in the first instance. This should be done as soon as possible and the expression of interest forwarded to the UCFL Hon Sec, Paraic Treanor.

There will a reduced fee of €216 and this can be further supported as the UCFL will refund 50% of the course fee to the participant’s UCFL club on successful completion. For any participant who cannot complete the full course in January, but does so at a later date, this refund will continue to apply, but only if the participant remains a member of a UCFL club competing in the UCFL at that later date.

Note that the D Licence is the first step on the coaching ladder and we hope to write again later in the season about the next step, the C Licence, for which those who have completed D (whether via the forthcoming January course or the previous (UCFL) course in 2018) will be eligible.
