Seminar – Developing a winning mentality.

We would ask all club officers, coaches and players of all ages to come along this evening, Wednesday 27/02 to the Bush hotel at 7.30 pm. In conjunction with Sport tracker, we will have three All Ireland winning Managers visiting Leitrim. Mickey Harte, current Tyrone senior football team Manager, Brian Cody current Manager of the Kilkenny senior hurling team and Pete McGrath, Manager of the All Ireland winning Down team and former Ireland Manager.
All three will be in Leitrim to launch the new Sport tracker player diary and team analysis books. Both the diary and the analysis books have been endorsed by the GAA at national level and are aimed at club players as well as Inter County players. Following the launch of the Sport Tracker system, Mickey Harte will speak on the topic "Developing a winning mentality" which should be of interest to all clubs and coaches in the County. At the conclusion of the presentation by Mickey there will be a question and answer session and also a chance to discuss the Sport Tracker player diary and analysis books. Everyone involved with GAA in the County should not miss this opportunity to meet and chat with three of the great Managers of our time.
