The Club is excited to enter another phase of development by starting a youth program for hurling and Gaelic football. With the donation of helmets, hurleys and sliothars from the NACB, we are looking to get youth hurling off the ground. The goal is to teach the games and the fundamentals in a fun and safe fashion so another generation of St. Louisans will represent the Club. Here are the details:
Ages – We’re looking to start with boys and girls aged 9-11. Of course, if you know someone older or younger that might be interested, e-mail me, and we can talk about accommodating.
When and Where – The hurling clinics will be held on hurling league weekends when camogie isn’t being played at 10 a.m. at St. Vincent’s Park. The first clinic will be April 21. The other planned dates are 5/5, 6/2, 6/16, and 6/30. If interest is high, we’ll continue further into the summer. Gaelic football will start up in the autumn.
Equipment – We have helmets, hurleys and sliothars. So the kids will just need cleats (and shin guards would be a good idea). However, kids will not be able to keep the equipment after practice.
Cost – For the first clinics, there is no charge.
Coaching – Instruction will be done by Club members in small groups. Criminal background checks are required.
What You Can Do – First, spread the word. Our club has grown based on word of mouth. So if your own children are interested, bring them out. Tell your family, co-workers, friends, etc. about the program. Second, if you’d like to help out in any fashion, e-mail Kevin Sullivan.
Finally, because equipment is limited for hurling, so are the numbers we can accommodate. So please have people e-mail me with interest or with questions at email@example.com.
