About All Star Coaching
Priming individuals and teams for success
An 'All Star' is a recognition of excellence in sporting performance, and is awarded to GAA players who demonstrate high levels of consistency, skill and determination. Paul is proud to be the recipient of All Star awards in 2010 and 2011.
The name All Star Coaching was chosen because of what it represents, its underpinning values and principles, and how these can be applied to help you reach your fullest potential, not just in sport, but in every aspect of your life.
Many people want to achieve All Star success.It takes effort, sacrifice, dedication, self-awareness and a radical commitment to being the best you can be. It also requires resilience so that you can respond to failure and defeat by learning and becoming stronger and wiser.
IF you want to stand out, be the best version of yourself, be aligned to your true values and goals, AND you are prepared to put in the work, THEN I believe that you CAN have transformational results and gain incredible self-esteem in the process.
If you are reading this and think, ‘this is me’, then I want to work with you. My ultimate goal with my coaching services is to help you to identify your values and goals, build on your strengths, identify where you have interferences holding you back, and action plan so that you can take your performance and life to the next level.

Team Coaching Testimonials
Kilkenny Camoige Manager
Paul Curran acted as a performance coach for the Kilkenny Camogie Senior team in 2019. Paul facilitated 7 sessions with the girls during the year. The sessions were varied and relevant at all times. Paul never judged or gave his own personal opinion on any discussion. He had a great way of allowing the girls to open up in an environment that they felt safe and comfortable in. The girls trusted Paul to be honest and to speak truthfully about anything on their minds.
Brian Dowling - Kilkenny Camoige Manager
Russel Rovers GAA Coach 2019/2020
Paul worked closely with the management & players on our run to the All-Ireland club final in Croke Park during the 2019/20 season. He immediately built a very strong rapport and trust with the group and encouraged engagement from all individuals. He assisted & challenged everyone to reach the standards and goals we had set ourselves as a group. His work-shops and methodologies facilitated self-analysis & accountability which led to improved performance, both on & off the pitch. Paul's contribution greatly assisted the club winning its first ever adult county & Munster titles and I would highly recommend his services.
Noel Furlong - Russel Rovers GAA Coach 2019/20
Kilkenny Camoige Player
Obviously sessions were about looking at things and maybe smaller details that would benefit us as a group. Sessions were for all players, managers, backroom team, which was great. The sessions were not only about learning to get the best out of yourself as an individual but also to get the best out of the girls around you. Paul really helped us to understand each other more off the field and to develop an absolute deep level of trust within the group.

Paul's workshops were enjoyable and beneficial. His common sense & inclusive approach made everyone feel comfortable contributing throughout the process. It assisted players' preparation on and off the pitch and allowed us focus on what was important. He challenged players in a non-intrusive way which helped us recognise our strengths & areas for development. Paul’s sessions also brought the group tighter together and more resilient. He contributed greatly to our journey to Croke Park for the All-Ireland club final this year.
