Donegal Secondary schools have had a busy Camogie schedule since returning to school this September. Already over 100 participants from 8 secondary schools have taken part in 3 exciting Camogie initiatives.
The first initiative offered Donegal students the opportunity to become qualified Camogie foundation coaches and pursue their Gaisce Bronze Award under the æCommunity involvement’ or Physical recreation section.
This initiative was followed up with a Green CARD foundation level referee course aimed at TY students/senior cycle students from Donegal.
The course contained three modules: Theory Course, Assessment and Practical.
A First and Second year blitz was the third and final initiative in this hectic schedule where all games were closely contested with some excellent displays from what are sure to be future Donegal Camogie players.
A huge thank you to all Schools who took part in these initiatives in particular Errigal College, Letterkenny for the use of their facilities. Thank you also to Gavin Craig Camogie CDO for his help and expertise while rolling out these initiatives. Finally thank you to Niamh Cullen, Stephen Doherty, Donal McLaughlin, Adrain Doherty, Shauna Devaney and everyone else who helped to make all the above a huge success.
