Camogie Association 2021 M.N.A Programme

The Camogie Association are delighted to launch the second year of their female coaching and mentorship initiative, the M.N.A (Motivate, Nurture, Aspire) Programme, in partnership with Sport Ireland’s Women in Sport Policy. The M.N.A Programme primarily looks at the development of female mentors and coaches within clubs around the country and the 2021 programme will offer places to 100 clubs to take part.

The programme will act as an important step in assisting clubs to ensure the retention of players away from the playing field and the recruitment of females and that they will pass on their knowledge and experience to future players through coaching.

The role which women can play in passing on their intrinsic knowledge of the game to young players in particular is a key reason behind this programme and the part which they can play as positive role models for young players.

Participating clubs will be required to nominate one female mentor who will be upskilled across a wide range of areas including communications, mentoring and volunteer development. M.N.A mentor training days will be held on 13th February (online) and 27th February (in person at one of four locations around the country).

M.N.A Mentors must be available on both days of training in order to proceed with the programme. Mentors will then be tasked with identifying new female coaches within their club who will assist them in delivering the association’s longstanding Hurl With Me initiative during 2021. Coaches participating in the programme will receive training in a foundation level coaching qualification.

The programme is seen as a model for clubs on how to develop a pathway to recruit, develop, retain, and support females within the club on their journey as coaches or in other volunteer roles. If you are a camogie player or ex-player and interested in joining this programme please contact
