Coaching booklets.
Coaches of all teams are always looking for new ideas and ways to coach skills, game set ups etc, so with thanks to John Morrison we have two publications, "Head, Hands & Feet" and "Games for better Team play" which coaches can purchase at a very modest cost of €15 each. All coaches should obtain copies of both publications as they are excellent reference books.
Some Fun do packs are still available at €50 per pack, and we would urge all coaches working with children up to under 12 to obtain a copy.
Both the booklets and the Fun do packs can be got by contacting Thomas Keenan on 087-6591049 or email

Vhi Cul camps 2009.
Application forms for this years Vhi GAA cul camps will be distributed to all schools after the Easter break and to all clubs over the next two weeks. A new on-line booking and payment system will commence on April 21st and we would encourage parents to avail of this method of registration if possible as it will make life much easier for us all. This new site can be accessed from the GAA website, If parents do not wish to use the new system they can still fill out the paper application form and forward direct to Thomas Keenan, Pairc Sean, Ck-on-Shannon. Which ever way you decide to book, can you please do so as early as possible as this will assist greatly with camp organisation.
A complete new kit has been designed for all those attending this year camps and the good news for parents is that camp registration fees for 1st & 2nd family members will remain the same as last year with a reduction of €10 for the third family member. This years camps will commence on Monday 6th July and will follow the same format as last year.
