Our ever-pop­u­lar Devel­op­ment Squad has started back and will con­tinue ev­ery week­end from 10 a.m. till 11 a.m. (In­doors) and new play­ers are al­ways wel­come. The cost is €3 per head. Due to the lack of space in the sur­rounds of the Sports Hall it may not be pos­si­ble for all par­ents to view train­ing in­side the play­ing area. Also due to the large num­bers at­tend­ing any play­ers fail­ing to at­tend for a num­ber of weeks with­out com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the coaches may have to wait till spa­ces in the Squad be­come avail­able again. At the mo­ment we have a large num­ber of boys and girls at­tend­ing each week and thank­fully at the mo­ment we have the re­quired coaches needed but we wouldn’t say no to a few more vol­un­teer coaches. If you think you can give an hour or two each week please con­tact our sec­re­tary at the con­tact de­tails be­low.
