Staff from Coerver Coaching travelled down to Kerry to meet up with Foundation Sports Brendan Hogan for a days training on the Move It program.
This is the first collaboration project between the two companies with Coerver Coaching Staff working in their local schools on education and health promotion iniatives.
“From the work we do with our own Coerver Kids we recognise the benefits of sports participation for children, unfortunately they are becomming the minority. Recent studies as highlighted by Martin O’Neil this week are showing disturbing trends which have a serious implications on the well being and health of our children and future adults. I feel as coaches we have a captive audience and a responsiblity to create awareness and educate the players and parents we work with. The Move It program is well structured and delivers really important messages in a child friendly manner, so well done to Foundation Sports and we look forward to working with them.
The training day was great fun but also very informative and some of the detail provided left all of us reflecting on our own lifestyle choices, if we have the same impact on every child we deliver the Move It program to then it will be a fantastic and worthwhile campaign. ” Jason Brown Coerver Coaching Munster Director
