Paddy, Roger and Suzanne would like to update you on all things team related as we are aware there has been some confusion around age changes and we’ve also had a great rise in our team membership numbers – we’re at approx. 35 girls across the 2 teams.
From September we split the teams into U9s and U11s this is as a result of the County Board setting up a league for this age group.
From January we will revert back to U8s and U10s.
U8s (girls born in 2009 and 2010) – we are looking for parents to volunteer to take on the coaching of this team. The main duties are – coaching and match co-ordination. There are 2 courses (Child Protection Awareness Course, Coaching Foundation Level) that need to be taken, they can be paid for by the club and we can inform you of the dates. You will also need to fill out a garda vetting form. The existing coaches are happy to help you get up to speed with coaching and all things team related between now and the end of the year. Please let Suzanne, Roger or Paddy know if you are interested in helping out this team.
The team will be unable to recommence training if a coaching group cannot be found.
The indoor training time for the U8 group is 6pm-7pm on Wednesday.
U10s (girls born in 2007 & 2008) – Suzanne, Paddy and Roger will be the coaches for this group going forward – as this is a substantial group if there are parents willing and able to help out in the coaching sessions please let us know – the type of help we need can be helping girls with catching, fitness drills, toilet runs, subs collections and other basics, you don’t need to have any camogie knowledge.
The indoor training time for the U10 group is 7pm-8pm on Wednesday.
Gormanstown for U10s
The U10 Gormanstown indoor competition starts on Sunday 22nd January and runs until 26th February. This will be for girls born in 2007 and 2008 only and we will need a commitment of at least 11 people.
We will send a what’s app message shortly to get the numbers.
Training will finish up for the year on Wednesday 14th December and return on Wednesday 11th January.
2017 Club Registration Fees will be due in late January early February.
