In addition, priority will be given to parents who volunteer to coach, no athletics experience necessary.  All we ask is a commitment of one training session per week, completion of an Athletics Leader and Child Safeguarding Courses (which will be funded by DSD) and completion of the Garda Vetting Process.  If interested in coaching, please email damiendsdac@gmail.com or note your interest on the new member enquiry form.  

 

Look forward to seeing you at training.  If you have any queries regarding the above or anything else, feel free to email or approach me at training.

 

Yours in sport.
