TAB seeks applicants for Tutor Training Courses.

TAB seeks applicants for Tutor Training Courses.

The Taekwon-Do Advisory Board deliver ITF Taekwon-Do specific coach education courses under the Coaching Development Programme for Ireland. Our programme currently consists of the Introduction to Coaching Taekwon-Do (1 weekend) course and the CDPI Level 1: Assistant Coach (4 contact days). Mr Adrian Byrne, Mr Stephen Ryan and Master Kenneth Wheatley currently deliver all courses.

 

With the expansion of the coaching programme to include the IMAC Level 2 (4 contact days generic and 5 contact days specific to Taekwon-Do) the existing pool of three Tutors will find themselves under pressure to meet the delivery demands of all courses. We are therefore seeking to train one to two new Tutors each year for the next few years.

The quality of the Tutor pool is critical to the success of our coach education programme and so we wish to create a panel of interested and qualified applicants for future Tutor Training courses. Through this proactive measure we hope to ensure we have a quality candidate available for training each time a place on the Tutor Development Course becomes available.

The training of a Tutor is a time and cost intensive process, requiring 5 weekends of the trainee’s time (not including assessment or course delivery) and costing approximately €2500 to TAB. The course is delivered by Coaching Ireland at the University of Limerick and serves the Tutor training needs of 60 sports.

Technical Seminar Report

Technical Seminar Report

The ITA Technical Committee (Master Kenneth Wheatley VII Dan, Niall Jones VI Dan and Stephen Ryan VI Dan) conducted a technical seminar in Donnycarney Community Centre, Dublin on Sunday May 18th. The Seminar was hosted by Mr. Fran Plunkett VI Dan and Mrs. Eileen Plunkett IV Dan. 50 ITA members from blue belt to 7th Dan attended the event. Over the course of the seminar the committee covered all 24 patterns in detail, step sparring as well as some fundametal excercises for free sparring. The participants were divided into 3 groups; blue and red belts, 1st to 3rd dans, and 4th to 7th Dans in the second part of the seminar so that the committee could go more in depth on the patterns specific to the groups grade. It was also a great opportunity for the senior grades who were preparing for promotion at the 92nd IIC the following weekend to get in some final preparation and training. The feedback from the participants was very positive and we look forward to the next ITA technical seminar which takes place in Ennis, Co. Clare on October 19th.
