The Camogie Association is delighted to launch it’s ‘Camogie4Teens’ programme.
This is a new and exciting initiative specifically for teenagers. The Camogie Association applied for funding for this initiative and were one of 5 national governing bodies to receive funding for a project from the Coca Cola Thank you Fund. The aim of this unique programme is to cluster Camogie clubs together in a county in order to provide targeted programmes for their teenagers (15-18 year olds).
There will be 5 clubs clustered together for each programme. Each club will be able to nominate 6-8 teenagers for the initiative. There will be 20 programmes in total. The 20 programmes will run over 2 phases.
County Boards have already applied for the programme and the 20 counties chosen are as follows:
Phase 1: Dublin, Meath, Carlow, Westmeath, Derry, Antrim, Cavan, Galway, Limerick, Cork
Phase 2: Wicklow, Offaly, Wexford, Kildare, Down, Armagh, Donegal, Roscommon, Clare, Tipperary
The county boards chosen above will now check to see what clubs within their county are interested in the programme and 5 clubs will be chosen within each county for the programme.
Each club in the cluster of 5 that is chosen within a county will host an element of the programme for the teenegers involved. Programmes include Coaching Course, Referee Course, Admin/PR Course, Lifestyle & Blitz day. Tutors for the courses will be organised by the Camogie Association through the Regional Development Co ordinators.
