Sport Matters: A brief insight into Sports Coaching

The QQI level 5 Sports Coaching Course offered by Portobello Institute is designed for anyone with an interest in enhancing their coaching knowledge. The course delivers scientific material on the theory behind common coaching practices such as periodisation, strength and conditioning and performance preparation.

As practitioners in the sports science and coaching industry both in Ireland and internationally, we recognise that often coaching courses are dated, theory driven and offer very little tangible development to improve on personal development as a coach.

We are dedicated to delivering a programme tailored to the needs of the learner, whether you are a seasoned coach looking to expand your scientific knowledge in a specialist domain ( such as psychology, nutrition, performance analysis) or starting out on your coaching journey looking to develop a strong foundation of training planning, organisation and communication skills. Equally, if you are interested in transitioning your coaching practice from a hobby to a paid career this course can provide you with the understanding of the industry and opportunities to explore full time sports employment opportunities both in Ireland and further afield.

All of our tutors are working coaches who are passionate about improving coach education. We value the level of dedication it takes to become a sports coach, with time often selflessly given to aid the development of others - we are here to support you in your own developmental journey as a coach.
