Club Coach Mentoring Programme

Rebel Óg Coaching are offering coaches of players between the ages 13 and 17 an exciting opportunity to develop their coaching skills & standards through a new mentoring programme.
Coaches who sign up to the programme will receive a series of blended workshops (face to face and on line) in the following areas :
  • Coaching session design/planning
  • Games based methods
  • Athletic development 
  • Technical skill development
  • Creating team structure (with/without the ball)
  • communication
Club coaches (of 13-17 year old boys) who are very keen to improve their own coaching standards and get more from their training sessions. If a coach has completed a Foundation Course and/or Award One Course, this programme would be an additional platform to hone coaching skills and will touch on elements of these courses but will be more practical and individual in focus.
The plan is to have coaches attend 6 workshops of 1 hour in duration over the next 3-4 months.
These workshops would be a minimum of 3 on line webinars and face to face content will depend on Covid 19 guidelines.
We would also setup an informal chat group for coaches to interact with each other to discuss particular coaching topics led by a facilitator.
Coaches should be willing to get constructive feedback on their coaching sessions also.
Coaches will have direct back up from their local GDA also once registered.
By following the link below and complete the form on or before Tuesday 20th October.
Please note this form is an expression of interest and does not constitute acceptance on to the programme. Places are limited and coaches may be shortlisted in advance.

Cork GAA Statement 08/10/2020

Cork GAA Statement 

Cork County Executive wishes to remind members that all club games in Cork are currently suspended in line with GAA guidelines. This directive applies to all ages and grades.

We intend to complete our 2020 programme of games when circumstances allow and the CCC will reschedule outstanding fixtures as soon as possible, subject to prevailing government restrictions, GAA guidelines and inter-county championship fixtures.

The remaining thirteen of our sixteen county finals at adult level had been scheduled over the next month and we thank clubs that have qualified for the latter stages of same for your continued patience at this difficult time for members.

No decision has been made on the club U21 fixtures currently outstanding.

Clubs are also reminded that training is permitted under the Level 3 guidelines

  • All underage training must be on a non-contact basis in pods of up to 15.
  • Adult teams can continue to train as normal.
  • All clubs and players are reminded that Health Questionnaires and all other relevant control measures must continue to be followed for club training.

In line with the suspension of games, the launch of Rebels’ Bounty scheduled for Sunday next has been postponed.

Rebels’ Bounty will instead be launched in late 2020 / early 2021 and a meeting of Cork County Committee, which will be devoted solely to this item, will be held when circumstances allow.

This will allow us to comprehensively outline the benefits of the initiative for clubs and to seek formal approval. There will be an extensive communication drive with clubs in the interim.

It is also planned to hold a general County Committee meeting in the near future on a virtual basis.

Finally, we remind members to comply with all current restrictions and guidelines, and we thank you for you continued support.

Updated Advice to Clubs and Counties – Oct 7th 2020

Following confirmation that all 26 Counties will move to Level 3 of the Irish Government’s Plan for Living with Covid 19, the GAA’s Covid Advisory group has issued the following key updates for those involved in Gaelic Games in the 26 Counties. The Executive in the North is due to meet later this week and it is anticipated that further restrictions may be imposed due to the rising infection levels in the six counties.


1. Club Games

The GAA, Camogie and LGFA have taken the decision that no club games should take place until further notice and for at least the next two weekends.

This position will then be reviewed and we will contact Clubs and Counties with any update on this position when it is available.

2. Club Training

In level 3, all underage training must be on a non-contact basis in pods of up to 15. Adult teams can continue to train as normal.

All clubs and players are reminded that Health Questionnaires and all other relevant control measures must continue to be followed for club training.

Adult Club players living in a County classified as Level 3 may travel to their Home Counties to participate in Training.

3. Use of Indoor Team Facilities

Dressing rooms, showers, gyms and all other indoor training facilities should remain closed for club activities.

4. Committee Meetings

No indoor meetings should be held.

5. Officer Training

All officer Training must be delivered on line. Outdoor coaching education courses may be held but are subject to a 15 person maximum.

6. Club Bars

Club Bars must remain closed until further notice

7. Indoor Events on GAA Property

Commercial use of indoor halls continues to be permitted where agreement was in place prior to March and relevant insurance are in place. Use by State bodies e.g. HSE/Schools is also permitted.

These are the only instances in which indoor activity is permitted on GAA Club property.

8. Outdoor Events on GAA Property

Gatherings of up to 15 people only are permitted. As such, fundraisers such as fittest family, Couch to 5k etc should not be organised.

Planned drive in events may continue, however patrons must remain in their vehicle for the entire duration of the event with no access to club facilities including bathrooms.


9. Games and Training

Neither competitive nor challenge games are permitted in 2nd Level schools.

Training can continue on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people

No games or training sessions are permitted in 3rd level institutions in either jurisdiction.


10. Use of Indoor Team Facilities

Inter county activity has been classified as an exemption to the normal restrictive provisions by the Government. Therefore the use of such facilities currently is for Inter County Teams only (Senior, U20, Minor) and should be carried out in accordance with the Return to Training and Play for Inter County Teams advice document issued recently.

Inter County players may use their relevant Club Gym for individual training as long as they are following the advice in the Inter County Return to Training and Play document.

Adult Club players living in a County classified as Level 3 may travel to their Home Counties to participate in Training.

11. Inter County Challenge Games

Inter County Challenge games may take place at Senior level only.

From midnight tonight, October 7th, challenge games can no longer take place at U20 or Minor grades.

12. Attendances at Inter County Games

In Level 3, all inter county games must be played behind closed doors.

The position with respect to the 6 Counties is currently being reviewed – further guidance for both jurisdictions on spectator arrangements (if any) will issue in due course for the Allianz Leagues, Provincial and All Ireland Championships

For Minor intercounty games or training sessions staged behind closed doors and because they involve players aged 17 and under,

· No more than 1 designated individual (parent/guardian) should attend a training session or game per child/family/group of children.

· The GAA Health Questionnaires MUST be completed by parents/guardians in advance of attendance.

Parents are NOT permitted to be in attendance at adult or U20 games where their child (U18) is participating. However, provision can be made to allow an adult to be in close proximity (e.g. in the car park etc) in case medical or other emergency needs require their presence.
