Rebel Óg Coaching have just announced details of a new football skills competition for underage club players.
Aimed at u 12,13 & 14 age groups, the competition is designed to test players kicking abilities off both right and left feet. The test is simple to set up and each player gets 5 kicks from his left and right leg, 10 kicks in total.
All clubs are encouraged to set up the test and run it at their club grounds on or before the 27th September. The top 3 players from an age group are then put forward to a Divisional final to be held on or before the 13th October. The county finals will take place among the 8 Divisional winners on the week ending the 20th October.
Co Op Superstores have come on board as sponsors of the event and we would encourage all members to support this sponsor where possible.
