We recognise the importance of coaching in the future of our sport and as members of the Angling Council of Ireland, ACI we are able to deliver a programme to our members. The ACI worked hard to bring angling in line with other national sports and delivered the first recognised all discipline angling coaching programme for Ireland. Recognised by Sport Ireland and Sports Northern Ireland the courses introduce coaching strategies developed by Sport Ireland Coaching with the ACI.
Recognition of angling as a sport by the Sports Ireland and Sports Northern Ireland gives the ACI a base for negotiation with official bodies on issues that relate to angling. The structured coaching approach delivered by the tutors mean that future generations of anglers will be coached in a manner that will benefit the angler and the sport. The individual angler can now use the angler pathway to be coached to whatever level of participation they so wish.
The courses are subsidised for NCFFI members meaning we can deliver to our members for the low cost of €20 at Introductory level, usual cost €100. Free vetting is available to all our members.
