50 girls attended a two day Halloween Camogie Academy in Burt on the 26th and 27th of October 2010. The girls ranged in age between 11 and 16. Clubs represented on the academy included Four Masters, Letterkenny Gaels, St. Eunans, Burt and Carndonagh.
The girls received specialist training in the basic skills of camogie from top coaches Deidre Grant and Mickey Glover. By the end of the academy the improvement was notable.
A mini league was run over the two days with the girls split into eight teams. The games were very competitive and played with great energy and enthusiasm. After all teams playing 7 games each Co-ordinator Yvonne Byrne deemed team “”Mayo”” the winners!!!!
At the end of the academy all participants received a t-shirt. The academy was enjoyed by all involved and all teams are already looking forward to the next academy!
A huge thank you to all who helped make the academy such a huge success, all the coaches, referees, clubs, club representatives, the county board and Burt GAA club for the use of their facilities.
