Leitrim GAA Coaching & Games Development

Connacht Play and Stay Day Croke Park.

This year under 12 hurling clubs got the chance to experience playing in our National stadium. The young hurlers from Cluainin Imaoint and Carrick hurling participated and we would like to thank players, mentors and parents for making the day a great success. A great day was had by all involved and team photos should be available this week.

Kellogg’s GAA Cúl camps

This year there are some exciting changes to the kit, with a stylish new half zip top and T-shirt replacing the original jersey, togs & socks. The backpack is still part of the new kit, while the cost of attending the camps remains the same as the last number of years. On-line registration is now available and we would encourage parents to use this method of registration if convenient as it greatly helps with assigning coaches etc to the camps. Standard application forms will be available through the schools from next week.

Club Coach Mentor Programme

Connacht GAA are promoting a new club/tutor liaison programme. This programme will consist of 3/4 visit’s from one of our qualified tutors. The idea is to review what is ‘Best Practise’ in coaching, in areas such as club coaching structure and systems. It is envisaged that the tutor will act as a facilitator for all the club coaches. Follow up visits will focus on practical sessions with the agenda been agreed between club and tutor. A nominal cost of €100 per participating club has been set. Clubs wishing to avail of the programme should contact Thomas Keenan or Padraig McGourty.
