2020 was both forgettable and unforgettable.
Like many sports organisations and society in general, 2020 challenged the Camogie Association at all levels, from our youngest to oldest members.
It was a time of sacrifice and restriction. It was a time of unknown and isolation. #holdfirm #staythecourse.
Let us acknowledge every Camogie Association Member and empathise with them for the year that was 2020.
However, where there is challenge there is opportunity.
In 2020, the Camogie Association issued a challenge to post primary school students on the island of Ireland to tell us their experience of participating or not in Camogie and offer us solutions on how to rise to meet the task of retention.
It is fair to say that these Post Primary School students accepted our challenge! As you can see from the volume of submissions, 2020 did not take away the passion for Camogie for these young women.
You are encouraged to take a few minutes to make a withdrawal from this bank of ideas.
The Camogie Association issues a challenge to you to listen to our young members, reflect on their suggestions and empower them to be the driving force of Camogie for years to come.
