TROY’S MARTIAL ARTS BACKGROUND MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

TROY MAKES QUICK PROGRESS

The Irish Sports Council (ISC) have worked closely with our Federation for years on a wide range of projects and their support has been greatly appreciated.  Strategic Plan, Anti-Doping, Child Welfare, Inclusion, Governance, Coaching, etc., are all part of the programme. With so many other sports involved, the challenge of fully understanding each is a major one. Troy Reneker of the ISC, a successful Marshal Arts athlete by background, set about resolving this over the weekend with a visit to Golden Falls WSC.

Troy decided that the best way to learn about Waterskiing was to put on a wet suit and take a lesson with our own Daryl Higgins who has recently completed his Coaching Ireland Course at the University of Limerick. Troy’s Martial Arts background made quite a difference. Starting on the Teaching Boom, he quickly progressed to the short line and then on to the long line – all in just one lesson ! Hopefully this will not be his last Waterski experience and we hope that it also gave him a wider insight to the skills and technology involved. Well done Troy and we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at the ISC back on the water again soon.
