Wicklow County Board will hold a Camogie Forum for its clubs on 30th January next in Aughrim. Details of the venue and speakers are set out above.
Mary O Connor Director of Camogie Development who is presenting at the Forum said "Utilising our past players can be a great asset to any club, so why do so few clubs not approach them? Appreciation and treatment of players in the playing lifetime is important in trying to harness their experience in the next phase of their camogie involvement as coach or administrators etc. This links with the retaining phase of the player pathway entitles ‘Shifting the goalpost’. I will be presenting on this topic during the Forum in Wicklow."
