Coaching for the past 10 years. I began coaching at grassroots club level with my local team Clerihan F.C.I then became involved in the coaching on the Emerging Talent Program with South Tipperary before doing some coaching and Analysis with West Waterford East Cork and Kilkenny. During this time I completed my Youth Certificate coaching badge through my Fetac Level 5 course in co-operation with the Football Association of Ireland. I continued my academic and coach education completing a level 7 Bachelor of Arts in Sports and Exercise in IT Carlow. As part of the course I completed my Uefa B license and completed my course with a Merit 1 degree. Once finished I set up my own company J&S Pro Performance. The company is a Sports performance company, where myself and my business partner look to support clubs and individuals improve different elements of their game through the use of GPS tracking, Fitness testing and coaching. Since starting the business I have had the opportunity to work with the Ireland Cerebral Palsy team, a host of League of Ireland teams along with different club teams and some underage international players.
I was Head coach of the the Emerging Talent program in South Tipperary for 2 years, coaching and overseeing the U12,U13 & U14s. I have always had a huge interest in video analysis and have been working with the Republic of Ireland U17s Mens International team as an assistant video analyst. This included 2 European championships which was an unbelievable experience and the leanings I have took thus far have been massively beneficial to my coaching. I have been working with Cobh Ramblers for the last season and a half. Firstly as Video Analyst for the First team and coaching with the U19s and now as Head Coach of the U15s team.
