Juvenile Indoor Training
Our Indoor training resumed last Saturday in the Community Centre and will continue at the same times over the coming months.

Coaching Corner
Check out the new addition to our website, on the top right hand corner of the site is “Coaching Corner”. This includes the Player Pathway guide and Coaching Resources.
The player pathway is a guide to mentors, players and parents as to what they should be doing as the boys progress through each age group in their playing career in Midleton GAA club. Its purpose is to aid and assist all concerned to maximise enjoyment and participation, with player welfare at the core of the plan. We hope this will provide assistance in ensuring the development of all players to reach their full potential, from their first introduction to Gaelic games at nursery level, up to the adult teams and beyond. As Gaelic Games is not an international sport the ideas contained in the plan are in keeping with best practice and in line with the GAA’ s Total Performance Model. Many thanks to both our Juvenile PRO Ruth Walsh and Club IT Officer Shane Goulding for setting this up.
