Cul Redz "Coaching on the Green"

November 8, 2018

Edenderry GAA completed their Cul Redz Coaching on the Green sessions with a very successful visit to The Sycamores on Saturday 27th April last.

This session saw over 70 children aged between 4 & 8 enjoy coaching in both hurling & football before they played a short game and ran a relay race at the end.

Edenderry GAA wish to thank all who helped coach at this session especially Derek Kelly & Keith McGuinness who turned up before they went off to Croke Park to represent Offaly.

A big thank you also to The Sycamores Residents Association for their assistance in organising this event and to all parents who turned up on the day.

Our CÚL REDZ Coaching Nursery will then commence in the first week of May. Saturday for Football and Thursday for Hurling. The programme is delivered by a group of club coaches including some of our Senior players and occasionally some our County Stars drop in to help out.

Our nursery concentrates and is delivered through the GAA ABC/Have a Ball Nursery Programme, It involves a series of fun based exercises to develop movement skills for children aged 4-8 years old. These skills form the basis for the later development of the specific skills of hurling and Gaelic Football. The level of competency with which one can perform these skills is referred to as their level of physical literacy.
