John Mitchel’s sports complex was buzzing again this week with our mighty U8 Boys & Girls training session.

The coach’s started off with stretching followed by some running & fun games. After that it was time for some Ball work where we got everyone practising the “Hand Pass” standing & walking. Next week is indoor Go Games so kids keep on practising!! & we hope to see you all again next Sunday 10.00am to 11.00am EVERYONE WELCOME Thank you.

UNDER 10 Boys

It was a cold morning on the astro pitch on Sunday morning but the U10 trained well despite the weather. Jack, Rory, Donncha, Broklyn and Cody worked hard and after a few minutes were over the cold and gave a great display of skills. Ronan, Calvin, Darragh and Luke worked hard on their passing and kicking. Eamon, Ethan, David and Dylan caught some great ball and distributed it well.

In the game at the end there some great displays of skills and a tremendous work ethic by everyone. If we keep this effort up it will be a wonderful year of games and fun.

Training again next Sunday at 10, bring gum shields and warm clothes and a hat (runners may be needed if we go indoors if the weather is too bad). Ask other friends to come training if they want to have a good time and learn new skills. Well done to everyone who trained and keep up the good work
