Women in Sport Coach Development Programme

Eight successful women coaches have recently been selected to take part in the Women in Sport Coach Development Programme. This is an exciting initiative for Cycling Ireland coaches and aspiring coaches. This programme will give the participants the opportunity to improve their knowledge, expand their network and develop leadership and coaching skills in a supported, collaborative environment alongside female coaches from Triathlon Ireland and Rowing Ireland.

The initiative will provide support to these coaches over a one-year period to develop their technical, communication, teamwork and leadership skills.

The support of the programme will include coach education courses, personal development workshops, opportunity to observe and engage with the High-Performance coaching team and ongoing support from WIS Lead.

The course will be delivered by Jo Hopkins Consulting (JHC). Established by former international athlete, coach, Director of Performance, and trained teacher and counsellor, Jo Hopkins, JHC combines performance sport and leadership expertise along with the Performance Cogs model to help individuals develop the skills and understanding necessary to deliver results under pressure.

Jo is particularly focused on developing women in high performance environments and along with her well established JHC associates such as Dr. Sharon Madigan (Head of Nutrition, Irish Institute of Sport), Eliza Downey (former IRFU International and Ulster Rugby’s Women and Girl’s Rugby coordinator), and Karen Brown MBE (Olympic medallist, Team GB Coach and Performance Mentor, English Institute of Sport) to name just a few, JHC have worked with Team GB, the IRFU, Sport Northern Ireland and other public and private sector organisations to help maximise each organisations performance and reach new levels of excellence.
