Gold Accreditation in Rebel Og Coaching Standards - In Spring of 2015 Rebel Óg launched a five year programme to provide a template for best practice in coaching, promoting maximum participation and optimal playing standards in juvenile clubs throughout Cork city and county. The programme includes minimum requirements for entry, with subsequent progression to Bronze, Silver or Gold targets. Last year we achieved Silver. It was one of the objectives set by the Juvenile Committee to work together with our Coaching Officer, Martin Mc Sweeney and our local Rebel OG GDA’s to achieve Gold status. We received the good news on Christmas Eve when Kevin O’ Callaghan announced that we had achieved Gold Accreditation. We would like to sincerely thank Martin Mc Sweeney and all our Juvenile Coaches for all their hard work and commitment in helping us as a Club to achieve this Gold Accreditation. http://rebelog.ie/taggedNews/10016583/benchmarking2020_vision_accreditation2016
