CONNECT TO PERFORMANCE BE 'READY TO PERFORM'
What approaches and methods are accepted as the best pathways towards driving higher levels of performance and lower injury rates??
Where do you feel you need to improve??
Based on the learnings accrued from many years working with teams, clubs players in a practical capacity in coaching, sports science and S&C, we'll focus on delivering the key and useful insights that will help you orient your preparations towards your desired performance levels.
The edge you require is normally hidden in the wide open - it's not more reports, more technologies, more expertise. It's the intangibles that we need to release in your culture - efficiency, effectiveness, resilience, leadership, innovation, creativity, resourcefulness, decision-making.
Ironically all the vital qualities you want in athletes/players.
CONNECT works not 'in' you team/club but 'on' the approaches, attitudes & behaviours that will govern improved individual and collective performance for years to come. Your players/athletes will only thrive if the environment they prepare in is of a standard befitting the performance you want.
The CONNECT difference that makes the difference?? Helping you get out of your own way!

Investigate: Formulate and distill your Key Performance Questions

It is clear that on-field/court performance is simply an expression of the preparation culture that exists around the team. "Match-Fit" shares the insights, behaviours and habits that will platform improved and sustainable winning performance levels. Think for a second....are your functions and people within coaching, team-management, S&C, sports science and medical all truly aligned and integrated towards player and team performance??
Our goal through "Match-Fit" is to work with your team, coaches and performance staff to empower them with the useful information and experiences that will lead towards self-sufficiency and a sustainable culture of improvement.
Higher Revenue and Lower Costs
The improvements in preparation and performance are ultimately reflected in the club’s financial performance - better on-field/court performance levels will mean higher revenues through improved attendances, prizes and greater sponsorship appeal. Lower injury risk means that not only are players available more often but associated medical costs are lower. A more motivated, engaged staff with a higher intrinsic motivation and sense of belonging and duty leads to stability and a culture of sustained excellence; what better way to invest in your players/athletes??

“I've worked with Paul on 2 counts over the past few years and would highly recommend his services to any party interested in creating a programme of long term athlete development.
Firstly I worked along side him as S&C coach for an inter-county team. During this time I learned a great deal from him and found his attention to detail and communication skills as well as his content knowledge to be top notch.
Secondly I have attended workshop lectures provided by Paul in his role as lecturer in Setanta College.
Again I found his content in relation to Long Term Athlete development to be second to none. Allied with this I found his communication skills were exemplary in making the lectures interesting, easily understood and most of all enjoyable!”
