Club Super Games Centres for 12 to 17 year olds in Football & Hurling…..

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN KEEPING YOUR PLAYERS ACTIVE OVER THE COMING MONTHS…. THEN THIS INITIATIVE BELOW IS FOR YOU…..

 

What are the Super Games?   

The Super Games program is designed to give youth players a chance to play Gaelic Games within their club when all other GAA competitions and training have finished. This is to encourage both players and coaches to keep in touch with the club scene over the winter months and to keep them physically active.   

It is also a welcomed break away from the coaching side of our game as it is based around small sided games. No coaching takes place during the Super Games program. Adults are present to assist and implement the smooth running of the program. The program can last for 4 – 6weeks, this depends on the club hosting and also the number of players they get to attend.  

The ideal time to run this program could be after Halloween (November)) & Christmas (Jan/Feb) before the new season starts. This would help ease the pressure on coaches and clubs.
