Indoor Hurling Commences

November 8, 2018


Last Thursday evening indoor hurling training for 2010 commenced for the U12s & U14s (children born in 1996, ’97, ’98 and ’99). In an effort to maintain the fantastic work done over the last couple of years with these players, it was decided to extend the indoor hurling programme to these age groups.

There were many new drills introduced to their training sessions with the use of new equipment such as ‘The Rebounder’. This piece of equipment is a 3ft x 4ft aluminium frame with a spring loaded net, which provides excellent target practice for children, and it also improves the their catching and control, as the Sliothar returns to each player at their own pace.

It is aimed to have these sessions in fun and safe environment, as the sessions are supervised by experienced qualified coaches. Indoor hurls and helmets are provided on the night, although the club recommends that in time, each hurler would have their helmet.

These training sessions will continue each Thursday at 6pm in St Mary’s Secondary School Hall, all new players are welcome. Each player is requested to bring €2 each week for the rent of the school hall.
