Camogie for Teens Belfast
Camogie 4 Teen girls in the city had two great weeks, they completed their first Whistle course November 10th with over 15 girls passing the assignment. This was followed by an excellent programme delivered From AWARE called Mindfit, the girls discussed social problems and Building resilience as players and youth. It was excellent to see so many of the girls engaged in such relevant topics. Simon McCrory Antrim hurling Captain also came along and delivered a practical session to the girls. Thanks to Simon for his time and effort. So far this has been another excellent programme.
