  • GAA Learning & Jigsaw- One Good Coach®

In the short term absence of f2f delivery of One Good Coach®, Jigsaw are directing local club requests to the GAA’s Learning platform where the course can be accessed: https://learning.gaa.ie/ . This does not replace the f2f delivery of One Good Coach®, but it is an alternative offering for this period of time we find ourselves in. Hopefully this workshop can be extended to other sporting organisations in the near future.
