AGM 2015 reports

At the recent AGM, the report from the under 8 management team was submitted by Ger O’Brien.

In this report, some of the main points included the following points.  Benefits of winter hurling in schools and sports complex very evident when kids started back training in March – kids were interested/sharp/focused from the off.

Excellent attendance at training throughout the season with nearly 30/35 kids present at each training session.

The two North Kerry Blitzes run by Maurice Leahy were again tremendous occasions, locations were Ardfert and causeway.  5 blitzes were competed in, we had 2 teams and could have had 3 at each blitz.  Travelled to Abbeydorney and played Ardfert in Caherslee for challenge matches.

The Tuesday night sessions run by David O’Dea and supported by our own coaches were also very well attended and really benefitted the kids.

The end of year blitz in John Mitchels finished the year on a high. 7 clubs took part including, Ardfert, Ballyduff, Lixnaw, Causeway, Ballyheigue, Firies and ourselves. Would like to expand this further next year.

Finally a big thank you to the team of core mentors who worked with the boys and girls during the season, Ger, John, Agnes, Morgan, Joe, Kieran and others who helped out in any way during the year.

With such large numbers to have such a group of reliable and committed mentors was crucial.  We must have being doing something right for the kids to keep coming back in such large numbers.  The work now begins to plan for 2016.
