Transition Year Camogie Coaching Course in Castlebar
A TY Camogie Coaching Course took place in Castlebar on Thursday the 11th November. Twenty four transition year students from secondary schools in Mayo took part in the course. Students both male and female attended from Sacred Heart secondary school in Westport, Davitt college in Castlebar and Ballyhaunis secondary school. This course was funded by the Mayo Local Sports Partnership and each participant receives a coaching t-shirt for completing the course. Thanks to Charlie Lambert from the Mayo LSP for his support on this project and for attending on the day to talk to the students. Tutors were provided by the Camogie Association for the course. Thanks to Yvonne Byrne and Lizzie Flynn who tutored on the day. The students will now return to their schools and practice what they have been thought by taking the first years in their schools for practical camogie training sessions. There will be a first year blitz then organised for schools in Mayo. The students can use this course and this practical coaching with the 1st years in order to obtain the Gaisce award in their schools if they so wish. Local camogie clubs in Westport, Castlebar and Na Brideoga will also use these students to help coach their underage and develop these players in order to strengthen camogie clubs in Mayo.
