Youth Development Camps

27 July, 2010

Coiste Oiliuna are running a pilot scheme of gaelic football summer camps for teenagers with the Cork senior football team. (See the attached)

This is a new venture and is designed to allow young players who are free during the summer days to get coached by their idols.

Run over 3 days it is only €30 to cover the costs involved and it works out at about €3 an hour.
Players will receive quality coaching and will get basic advice on diet, nutrition and key tips on preparation for games.

I would ask you all to promote this initiative in your own clubs so that the players can decide if they wish to attend or not.
It is a pilot scheme so we have not gone through the mass media as we dont want to go too big just yet. We are really doing a test this year with a view to expanding the scheme in 2011.
