Vision Sports Ireland along with our NGB partners are committed to providing training and education opportunities for coaches across our all our sports to ensure all volunteers have the confidence and knowledge to create a positive safe environment for participants who are blind or vision impaired.

Understanding vision impairment and learning from participants allows coaches to adapt and identify simple ways to support a participant with vision impairment.
