The Tesco Hurl With Me initiative is getting underway in M.N.A Clubs all across Ireland, with new sponsors Tesco on board for the first year of their sponsorship.
Almost 50 M.N.A Clubs will be rolling out the Tesco Hurl With Me initiative. The initiative allows parents and guardians to train with their daughter in their local Club, learning the basic skills of the game under the supervision of their M.N.A Mentor.
The programme runs for four weeks providing parents with the necessary skills to continue playing with their daughter for years to come. It also provided opportunities for parents to become involved in their daughter’s Club as a volunteer and the initiative also aims to identify female participants who may wish to continue on and complete the M.N.A Coaching element and become qualified coaches.
Leading the coaching element of the initiative will be our newly trained M.N.A Mentors, who are completing their two-year programme, which aims to encourage more female coaches to get involved in Camogie. Throughout this turbulent year these M.N.A Mentors have continued their development and upskilling in preparation for the Tesco Hurl With Me initiative.
New sponsors Tesco have been generous in supplying our M.N.A Clubs with an equipment pack to assist them with the delivery of this initiative as well as providing support and promotion to Clubs in their communities.
