An under 9's First Touch Hurling blitz
An under 9's First Touch Hurling blitz will take place in Mayfield GAA complex on Saturday 20th October 2012 at 10.15am until 12pm latest.
In total, six pitches will be set up with an allocation for twelve club teams. Teams may consist of 8 to 11 players per side. More pitches can be set up should an interest be shown. Teams do not need previous experience of hurling to participate and compete. The First Touch Hurling Blitz will promote 100% participation of players, improve the overall speed and competency of hurling skills and give participants confidence in their own hurling abilities.
I am targeting this blitz at club sides who may not be able to compete with better well developed teams in their age bracket at the moment. I would hope that clubs will form links with eachother and host/travel to eachother for Go-Games into the immediate future. Through a games-based approach to coaching,
I hope club playing standards will improve and ensure club nursery section participation numbers don't fall off into the immediate and long term future.
Please respond if you are interested in entering a team(s).
