Coach Education Workshop Series - Supporting athletes with fuelling for performance and health


In collaboration with Sport Ireland Institute and Bodywhys- The Eating Disorders Association of Ireland, Athletics Ireland will host a series of online interactive workshops. Problems resulting from under fuelling and eating disorders have long been a significant challenge for our Sport. The workshops will aim to guide how coaches can help to reduce and respond to challenges in this area. Workshops will take place through Zoom webinars and will include input from experts from a range of fields from nutrition, physiotherapy to psychology.
