We were also very fortunate to have Dave Woods and Sue Aldridge come over from the UK and provide high level training to our new Table Officials and Referees who learned a lot over the weekend. Referees and Table Officials are key volunteers in developing the level of Wheelchair Rugby in Ireland and ensuring a high level of officiating to develop our National League. Congrats to all those who underwent training and we look forward to seeing them all in action at the next two rounds of the Irish League in Bangor on 21st October and Dublin on 9th December.
Thanks also to Deborah Bowditch, International Level 4 Classifier who came over to assist in classification for all the new athletes.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the weekend in particular all the Irish Wheelchair Rugby National Team Staff and Players who provided support and mentoring to everyone involved. We hope this is the first of many training opportunities for both players and officials to develop their skills.
