The second edition of Coach Connect ‘The Coach through the Athlete’s eyes’ focussed on the athletes experience of coaching. This webinar featured fantastic insights from the athletes themselves on how the coaches use of language and emotional understanding can drive them on in the sport.

The first of two panel discussions on the night featured 3 young athletes at the beginning of their promising careers. Roisin Hannon (Canoe Slalom), Owen Bracken (Canoe Polo), and Éabha Ní Drisceoil (Canoe Sprint & Marathon) talk in depth about their experiences of coaching so far, and the range of factors which influence how they engage in the coaching process.
