JUVENILE CAMOGIE INDOOR TRAINING 2019
Dear Parent / Guardian,
We are delighted to let you and your children know that U8, U10 and U12 indoor camogie for the coming season is taking place as follows:
Camogie Coaches and Assistants: Deirdre McDermott, Ollie Moran, Dervilla Hoare, Roberta Hanley, Michael King, Niamh Fallon, Fiona Ní Chuinn, Orla Connaughton, Marie Cormican, Teresa Hession, Paula Connaughton, Jimmy Brennan, Damien McSharry.
Do you need a hurley? Yes. Players can play indoors with their own hurleys provided they put a sock over the bás to prevent floor damage. Outdoor training will begin in late March. Please talk to our coaches if you need to order a hurley as hurleys can be purchased at a lower cost through Roscommon Gaels GAA Club.
Do you need a helmet? Yes. All camogie players are required to wear helmets. In the past, we have provided old helmets to players but since 2014 we have insisted that players have their own helmets which meet correct safety standards. Please talk to our coaches if you need to order a Club helmet as helmets can be purchased at a lower cost through Roscommon Gaels GAA Club.
Interested in coaching/assisting? We would be delighted with any help you can give. We are particularly looking for help with the U8 girls. The kinds of jobs we need help with are putting on helmets, taking players to the toilet if necessary, taking photos and notes for the club PRO, collecting money and doing the roll call, setting up drills and supervising training groups. Please talk to any of the coaches above the next time you are at training.
Club Registration Parents must register their child in order for her to be insured to train or play with the Club during the coming year. You can download an application form from the Roscommon Gaels website and you can also talk to any of the coaches above.
