Cavan and Monaghan development squads took part in a development day on Saturday 3rd October. Both counties had received æCoillte’ U14 Development squad programmes in the past couple of years and have continued the work done with these squads by moving their development programme up to the U15, U16 and U17 age groups.

Both counties have realised the importance of having young players who are encouraged to develop and improve their skills, rather than æwin at all costs’. The ethos underpinning their Development Squads initiative is one of fun and skills learning. This is combined with a focus on coaches, where the coaches are exposed to new coaching techniques and games, which in turn will lead to the availability of quality coaching across the Counties.
