Keynote Speakers 

Noelle Morrissey 

Noelle Morrissey is a high performance Olympic and World Championship coach, who specialises in sprints and hurdles, and is currently coaching Ireland’s fastest ever woman, Sarah Lavin, who holds both Irish records in the 100m and 100m Hurdles.

On the day Noelle will discuss: “The Process, Planning & Execution of Long-Term Coach-Athlete Development”.

As a volunteer coach, Noelle is very aware of the lack of female coaches in high performance sport but is willing to share and support those who have ambitions to coach at the highest level. On October 14th, Noelle will discuss some of the crucial decisions she had made as she developed her coaching expertise, who she turned to for support and how she continues to navigate the intricacies of being an elite coach.

Other speakers and coaches will be announced in due course.
