Bray People - - SPORT -

THE 2014 U-14 camo­gie de­vel­op­ment squad got to­gether on Thurs­day to set the new sea­son in mo­tion.

A glo­ri­ously sunny evening in the Bal­li­nakill Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence was the per­fect back­drop to the ex­cit­ing sea­son ahead.

There was a great turn out of as­pir­ing fu­ture County play­ers and oo­dles of talent in the 35 girls who signed up for the first ses­sion.

The came from east and west, north and south - all ready to play camo­gie in the name of County Wick­low.

Their sea­son will con­sist of two parts: 1: a num­ber of squad train­ing ses­sions where the em­pha­sis will be on de­vel­op­ing the in­di­vid­ual skill of each par­tic­i­pant which in turn helps the play­ers own home club when they play in club league and cham­pi­onship through­out the sum­mer and 2: play­ing in a num­ber of blitzes or­gan­ised by dif­fer­ent coun­ties through­out Le­in­ster.

They will also play in the Le­in­ster Coun­cil or­gan­ised blitz on May 18. The high point of their sea­son will be the All-Ire­land blitz on Satur­day, Septem­ber 13 and their ap­pear­ance in the Pa­rade of Coun­ties in Croke Park on All-Ire­land camo­gie fi­nals day - Sun­day, Septem­ber 14.

It's still not too late to join. Get yourself to Bal­li­nakill on Thurs­day of this week and you will be very wel­come to be­come in­volved - open to reg­is­tered Camo­gie play­ers born in 2000 and 2001.
