SOME 90 boys and girls from Moate CS recently undertook a six-week mini-coaching course and received their certificates from Steve Coy, Leinster Rugby CRO (midlands area).
The course involved theory and practical coaching and, from the feedback received, all students enjoyed a fun and educational experience.
The course was run by Steve and Midland Warriors CRO Cian Glennon, with assistance from teachers Ian Hatton and Peter Tourmey.
Cian also runs coaching programmes for other age groups in the school, which will lead to Moate CS competing in Leinster Schools competitions next season. He also runs a primary school programme in seven feeder schools.
