Coaching Calander.
Our Coaching calander for 2006/07 will be published shortly and will contain details of all seminars and events for the next year.

Coaching Courses
Our level one coaching course will commence at the end of October. Any person with foundation level completed should try and complete level one, as a new coach education format will be in place for next year.
Foundation level courses will be run as requested by clubs and can be regional or club based depending on numbers.

Under 17 development Squad.
It is planned to set up an under 17 development squad early in October. This squad would then help form our minor squad for 2007. It would be envisaged that those in charge of this squad would form the minor management for 2007. If this is acceptable to the Board we would hope that a management team could be put in place now rather than at the start of 2007 and be ratified at a special meeting if necessary.

Ladies Success
Finally congrats must go to our ladies on reaching the All Ireland Junior final. All involved in coaching wish them well in the final.
