More than 150 young players took part each weekend in these fun games on Sept 4, 12, and 26th and the final weekend Oct 10th when all players were presented with Certs.
Each participating club hosted one blitz and many thanks to parents, club officials and coaches who helped organise and provide refreshments for these events.

Below is a short report from St Mollerans coach Sinead Landers;
We hosted one of the Waterford Go Games blitz at the St. Mollerans Club in Carrick Beg and had five teams in total. The five teams were St. Mollerans, Roanmore, Tramore, Portlaw and the Brickey Rangers. Having that amount of teams involved we decided to make each game 8 minutes a-side and each team play each other once. After three games we then took a break for refreshments. I am lucky that my girls parents are hugely involved in helping out in any way they can. All parents provided sandwiches, tea, coffee, cakes, biscuits and other items and were on hand to hand out to all the clubs and their mentors.
The day was a great success with much support on the sidelines for all the girls involved. I found the Go Games a great idea as it taught each girl to become involved in the game and also to realise the importance of staying in their positions on the field. It also allowed the very young girls in our club to become involved and get a real taste of what it is like to take part in a match and get to actually hit the sliotar and score! I am delighted we agreed to become involved in the Go Games and would definitely recommend it to other clubs and hopefully be apart of it again in 2010.
