Open Sessions for U13 Players (Born 2003)

news logo rebel og U13 PlayersFurther to previous correspondence, GDAs will hold registration days / coaching sessions throughout the county for U13 boys for 2016 (born in 2003) on this Thurs / Fri, Feb 18th / 19th.

Sessions will incorporate football & hurling and will mark the beginning of a regional coaching programme which will eventually lead to the formation of regional panels later in the year and ultimately county U14 panels in 2017.

All boys on the age are welcome and are encouraged to play both codes on the day. Players may choose one code if they wish. All boys who attend will be welcomed back for further camps / sessions subsequently. These are not trials.

Almost ninety clubs have now submitted contact details for almost 800 boys and GDAs are currently texting these contacts directly with details of sessions.

Note clubs that have responded, listed below. Players will be instructed what venue (& time) they are to attend.
