Austin Stacks GAA Juvenile Club News

Posted by



The dull and gloomy start to last Sunday morning didn’t deter our All-Stars from taking to the pitch to continue their weekly sessions. United as a single group this week, the All-Stars moved through alternating skills and social games under the guidance of their amazing coaches and parents.

They were in flying form and lots of fun was had by all. Each and every one of our All-Stars is showing continued improvement in ball skills.

The obstacle course and parachute ranked high in the fun stakes this week and lots of laugher was heard around the pitch, from both the adults and children! We wish All-Star, Omar, the best of luck on his new adventure and we look forward to seeing him back on Black‘n’Amber soil again very soon.

The All-Stars initiative is open to all children with a diagnosis. Join us on Sundays at 10AM on the Austin Stack Club pitch in Connolly Park. New members are always welcome! Contact Sarah (087-281 0239) or Sandra (087-294 6658) for information.
