The Camogie Association is delighted to launch the expansion of the Evolution Series which houses both the Evolution Technical Skill Series, as well as the Evolution Athletic Development Series. This suite of video content is produced specifically for coaches and caters to an array of phases across the recently launched Gaelic Games Coach Pathway.
Across the series, easily accessible visual supports are provided to coaches in the form of games and drill activities, along with the associated coaching cues, all catering towards the player at their specific point upon the Gaelic Games Player Pathway.
The Evolution Technical Skill Series is made up of three overlapping elements, namely Skill Evolution, Game Evolution, and Drill Evolution. These elements emphasise the technical skills of the game of Camogie and provide the viewer with a little inspiration in the coaching of such.
The Evolution Athletic Development Series looks to provide coaches with the cues and practices associated with the development and support of the Camogie player as an athlete. Jump Evolution provides the viewer with essential patterns in assisting the player in jump and landing mechanics. This series branch will continue to develop with a view to supporting coaches in ensuring they are provided with a visual support in how best to facilitate building strong and robust Camogie athletes.
Uachtaran, An Cumann Camogaíochta, Hilda Breslin commented: “This Evolution Series presents as a vibrant and modern resource for the coaches of our game to use as an aid in providing the best experience possible to our players within their sessions. I am excited to see the incorporation of this highly valuable content into The Camogie Association’s existing programmes such as ‘Hurl With Me’, again signalling the efforts towards providing coaches with modern and fresh content in the support of their valuable work within our game.”
Technical Development and Participation Manager of the Camogie Association, Lizzy Broderick commented: “We are delighted to see this Evolution Series become available to our Camogie coaching community. As a games development team, having this type of content to hand allows us to further strengthen our offerings to the volunteers coaching the game of Camogie across the country and beyond. I look forward to seeing coaches engage with this valuable offering, and the inevitable positive effects it will have to coaching sessions at grassroots and beyond”.
Going forward, the Camogie Association looks to utilize resources such as the Evolution Series in supporting coaches with easily accessible, visually appealing content, relevant to their area of coaching activity upon the Gaelic Games Coach Pathway.
The Camogie Association will be releasing a weekly video on our social media platforms to highlight each individual skill contained within the series. The Evolution Video Series can be viewed in full here on the Camogie Association’s website: https://camogie.ie/development/evolution-video-series/
