Embarking on a journey of personal and organisational change is not an easy task. It is difficult to break the mould of known activities and outcomes, and venture into an unknown that offers both untold possibilities, but also a great risk of failure. However, the world's game changers were always those people and organisations who took the road less travelled, who embarked on the difficult journeys of discovery and creation.

We have reached a tipping point. Traditional services for people with intellectual and other disabilities are proving increasingly out-dated. They may provide temporary comfort, but not lifetime independence, and they do not take the individual's needs and wishes into account. Their one-size-fits-all approach is not desirable, nor sustaiable, and many services do not function in the spirit of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

In this respect, the New Paths to InclUsion Network was an innovative project. It empowered organisations to find and create change from within, following the ground breaking Theory U. Having gone through the process, partners can now share their learning, and guide others on the journey to a better life for all.

A useful resource

The Online Knowledge Centre is meant to be a one-stop-shop for organisational change. You can find a six-module curriculum in person-centred approaches, as well as related multiplication courses. You can also discover different Theory U tools, and get inspired by success stories from our partners.

The Online Knowledge Centre is meant to be a "living" online space, which will only grow in the next days and months, once more and more knowledge seeds are planted, and experiences are collected!

Be Your Best

Whilst Match-Fit has worked with sports players at the very highest levels we also understand that the vast majority of players will not progress to elite level and quite simply wish to maximise their talent at the level they have chosen.

With a long expertise in Long-Term Player Development, the “Be Your Best” program is aimed at youth and academy level teams/clubs/players to ensure that solid foundations are put in place with youth players from 13 and upwards to adult levels to ensure that they receive the very best in athletic/physical development coaching.

 

 

Our experience ensures that only the most age and stage appropriate programs are designed to suit your players. We have a dual focus - the needs of the player(s) and also the demands of the sport. 

In an age where our youth are more sedentary than ever “Be Your Best” provides a physical development pathway for players that ensures they will develop higher levels of skill and aptitude in key areas such as mobility, stability, strength, speed and movement skills. The development as part of the “Be Your Best” program means that all your youth players will have the chance to maximise their own potential in an appropriate and responsible fashion utilising insights supported by the latest research and practices adapted by the standard-bearers globally in terms of youth development.

Are our players fit enough ?

Is our training program fit for purpose ?

Why do we seem to start games slowly ?

Why do we always concede scores late in the game ?

Questions like these, and many more performance-based questions, are asked daily by coaches - but with no firm answers.

The Match-Fit “Ready to Perform” program is designed so that coaches and players can now enjoy answers to the key questions they need to answer in their pursuit of higher levels of performance. “Ready to Perform” focuses not so much on giving you the elusive “2% edge”….instead our focus is to ensure you have all elements  covered and maximised in the first 98% of your training and prep.

In collaboration with VX Sport (www.vxsport.com) Ready to Perform will deliver not only the world-class VX Sport player/athlete monitoring system but also the insights and education necessary for you to gain maximum insight from your data in a time-efficient manner so that you can then bring these insights alive on the training field. 

VX Sport has operated globally for the past eight years and includes many top teams/organisations on their roster eg. All-Blacks etc etc etc

Match-Fit is a preferred partner for VX Sport and in collaboration we have designed the Ready to Perform program so that teams of all levels and grades can enjoy the benefits of monitoring that the top teams enjoy for investment levels to suit all budgets and needs.

 


A quick reminder with final details for this week's VX Sport Athlete Training Workshop with Paul Clarke

With “Performance You Can See” courtesy of the VX Sport technology your players will now have access to insights to help coaches drive higher levels of performance as well as lower injury risk and improved player welfare.

Since 2002 Paul Clarke has acted in a coaching and performance consultancy capacity In Ireland, UK and the wider EU. In partnership and collaboration with key partners such as VX Sport (www.vxsport.com) Match-Fit has built a solid reputation for delivering insightful coaching and performance interventions given the breadth of experience working with players from U-13 to adult level acorss all grade from grass-roots to elite levels.

.

 

To achieve high levels of performance at any grade from amateur to elite level you need to do the work on your own - however you cannot achieve it alone.

Since 2006 Match-Fit has acted as a trusted adviser and coach to teams, clubs and organisations seeking to overcome and outweigh the barriers in their way towards consistently satisfactory levels of performance.

No longer is peak performance the sole reserve of only the most elite teams, players and athletes - through Match-Fit programs such as Be Your Best; Ready to Perform and Return to Play we share the processes, pathways and strategies that will ensure that you are getting the very most for and from coaches and players as they strive for levels of excellence.

Although achieving high levels of performance is simple it it not easy - long ago a Greek poet wrote 

We don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.”

Working with Match-Fit will ensure that your training, preparation, approaches and programs will be tailored to deliver towards your goals, commitments and expectations. All our programs are informed by both the  latest science as well as many years practical experience across all ages and grades in Ireland, UK, Europe and beyond. With access to and insights from a wide network of top teams, clubs and organisations as well as partnerships with VX Sport and AnaMo all our programs and pathways have evolved to deliver for you where it matters most - on the the training ground and field of competition.

What are people saying about Kevin?

 

 

 

Fran O'Reilly | CEO at Amaze

"I have had the great privilege of collaborating and working with Kevin for the last 4 years. Throughout this period, I have been amazed at his commitment both to the organisation he works with and his own personal development within that context. Uniquely, I have found them to be somebody who can deliver exceptional results through people. The bottom line is always in mind. But everyone is brought with him and everyone wants to work in the one direction as result of Kevin’s intervention. Always a team player, he effortlessly enthuses other people towards the common goal. With Kevin, the outcome will be as big, probably a lot bigger than anyone else can imagine. He is definitely the captain I would want on my side."

 

 

Siobhan Early | Player Development & Marketting Manager at Gaelic Players Association

 

"Kevin is head of our GPA Rep Leadership Team in Leitrim and has also been involved in a high level of personal and business development with us here in the GPA over the past number of years. He continually works hard to ensure he is operating at his personal best in business and life.  Besides his professional and personal experience, he is extremely active and a hardworking individual. He has played high performance sport at an elite level in the GAA from a young age, representing both his club and county with pride. He has done this as an amateur sportsman and has committed himself at all times to his career off field also.

Most recently, Kevin was selected to become an attendee on our exclusive GPA Madden Leadership Programme. This is an intensive leadership development process which seeks to take high potential players from our games and build them into the future leaders of business, our communities and society.  His dedication to this programme has been exemplary and he has performed above and beyond expectations"

 

 

 

 

Dr Ian Kenny | Senior Biomechanist at University of Limerick

 

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Kevin since 2012 in his position as Director of Technical Operations at Redback Biotek.  I have provided consultancy on biomechanics aspects of Redback’s work. I have always found that Kevin is user-focused, committed to providing effective solutions to defined problems in the sports technology field. Presented with a scenario, Kevin has been able to come to terms with the subject matter of the topic being investigated very quickly. His review methods are thorough and critical and he shows great ability in working independently, analysing the data and arriving at conclusions and solutions that provide a tangible benefit to the end-user, be that an athlete under investigation, a lecturer/teacher, or research student. It would appear that Kevin is a sportsperson at heart, and athletes seem to benefit very well from his input.

Kevin has been an invited guest lecturer in 2013, 2014 and 2015 for the BSc. Sport & Exercise Sciences module ‘Novel methods in biomechanics’ for which I am module co-ordinator. Kevin spoke at length on the topic of ‘Sports Technology and Functional Biomechanics’.


Kevin has always been thorough, punctual and honest in his approach and I am happy to recommend his involvement in your work"

 

 

Gerry Duffy | Proffesional Speaker / Performance Expert on Goal Setting, Change and Leadership

"I worked with Kevin in 2013. In my dealings with him, I found him to be exceptionally focussed and committed to delivering his best in a team environment. His values of commitment, dedication and discipline really resonated with me. I was hugely impressed by his pursuit of leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of getting the best out of himself for the benefit of the team"
