Excitement Builds For 2024 Level Up Coaching Skills Conference

Excitement is building as Cycling Ireland and Triathlon Ireland look forward to the second Level Up Coaching Skills Conference, taking place on March 2nd at the Tollymore Outdoor Centre, Co. Down. 

The conference is aimed towards coaches of all levels, from participation to high performance, and will focus on skill acquisition through sessions with speakers and discussion and collaboration with coaches from other sports.  

The conference will run from 9:30am to 4:30pm and will include lunch. Registration costs just €55 for Triathlon Ireland and Cycling Ireland members, €70 for non-members, including coaches from other federations. 

With less than two weeks to go until the big day, excitement is building for the conference as coaches look forward to a day of coaching focused and engaging learning and networking. 

Niamh O'Gorman, Triathlon Ireland Head of Development and Education, said: 

"This conference is a key opportunity for our coaches to come together with coaches from other federations and hear from some excellent speakers. We are delighted to partner with Cycling Ireland again to deliver this conference and we strongly encourage our coaches to come along to the beautiful grounds of Tollymore National Outdoor Centre for a day of networking, discussion and engaging learning opportunities."
