Underage Wrapped Up For 2017 

Yes folks, it’s been a great year of football for the youngsters of the parish and we’ve had an extensive program of coaching and learning.

Last night brought to an end this year’s fun for the Christmas break, but I’m sure all the kids can’t wait to get back at it in the new year. 

Below are the p4&5 children at Meadowbank, and below that the P2&3s at the Gaelic Centre. 

Thanks to the coaches and young helpers at this time, and remember folks they are all volunteers.

Keep an eye out on social media for the coaching program starting in the new year, and Merry Christmas to you all. ☃🎄

Club Coaching Development Course Complete

Thanks to Lizzie from Ulster GAA for delivering the Club Coaching Development Course. Over the past 5 weeks we’ve been working hard on developing our coaching strategy. The course has been very worthwhile, and the club are excited to do anything we can to improve in all areas.

Having a Ball

The P2’s and 3’s enjoying the learning tonight. 

And the P4’s and 5’s in Meadowbank again with 21 participating. It would be great if we could boost these numbers. 

Do you know someone who isn’t out yet?? 

Let them know it’s begun, everyone welcome, a great way to get your kids learning to move and exercise, as well as interact with other children outside of school and learn about teamwork.
