Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year 2019
30th October 2019
The Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year is an award which celebrates the incredible work carried out by volunteer coaches within Ulster GAA.
Following the phenomenal success of the initiative over the past two years, we’re once again calling on clubs, players, parents, teachers and teams to nominate coaches who are most deserving of the award.
Whether it’s an under-age manager who, come rain, hail or shine, always goes the extra mile to make sport fun for the stars of the future, or a senior trainer who inspires everyone in the club with their passion and commitment, we want to hear about them!
The winning coach will be declared Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year. They will WIN specially commissioned commemorative training gear for themselves and 10 FREE coach trips for their team over the next 12 months (subject to T&Cs).
Nominations are NOW OPEN!
Nominations are open until Wednesday 6 November 2019. When submitting your nomination, please remember that Translink and Ulster GAA are looking for evidence to ensure the nominee meets some or all of the criteria:
- Coaches a team at any level, from any code, within an Ulster GAA club
- Demonstrates exceptional commitment to coaching Gaelic games
- Holds a recognised coaching qualification
- Makes a positive impact on the local community through volunteering as a coach
- Acts as a role model for other people in their community
- Adopts a player-centred approach to learning and development
After nominations have closed a panel of experts will select a shortlist, to include one finalist from each county. After that it’s back over to you for the public vote to decide who will be declared the 2019 Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year.
The winner will be announced on Sunday 1st December at the Ulster GAA Football Senior Club Championship Final.
