Club/School Link Coaching Programme 2011 / 2012

Monday, November 28, 2011

We had two very successful school hurling and football blitz days in Old Connaught on Monday 21st and Thursday 24th November 2011. On Monday 21st the boys from St. Cronan's three 2nd classes had a hurling blitz with 6 teams of 9 a side. The weather was fine and the boys displayed the coaching skills that Tommy Carroll and Paul Barry are providing every week as part of our Club/School Link Coaching Programme. On Thursday 24th, we had a football Blitz with the 2nd and 3rd classes of Scoil Chualann, Gaelscoil Ui Cheadaigh and St. Peters. The boys and girls again displayed their skills on a very windy but dry day.  Thanks to Paul Barry for organizing the blitz and to Garrett Doyle, Wicklow GDA, for his assistance on both days.  We would also like to thank the school principals and the teachers for their support of the Schools Coaching Programme.
