by admin·Comments Off on Under age Training is back on Saturday 2nd March at 10:30am
Saturday morning FOOTBALL training returns on March 2nd at 10:30. This training involves all BOYS & GIRLS up to and including 12 years old. This year we are putting a big emphasis on our NURSERY (5-7 yrs inclusive) to attract even more new members. The Nursery will be centred around introducing Kids to fun games/exercises that develop their movement, co-ordination & agility, alongside football skills. The emphasis is on FUN and from that, the learning happens. We’d encourage all parents to bring along kids of the relevant age group and mention it to neighbours/friends/family who might benefit from it too.
All ages from u5 boys and girls welcome. Looking forward to new and returning children joining the club for a new season.
The HURLING Skills Challenge is continuing on FRIDAY nights up at the Gaelscoil, with great progress being made each week. This will continue indoors until mid March and then normal group training will resume.
