Dates have recently been confirmed for this year’s White’s Cross GAA Vhi Cúl Camp. This year’s Camp will run from Monday, June 30th to Friday, July 4th. As always the venue will be the Upper Glanmire Community Field and indeed White’s Cross GAA would like to acknowledge once more the support of the Upper Glanmire Community Association in making this facility available.
Each day of these camps, which have been run by White’s Cross GAA for the past six years, the coaches and their assistants work on developing new skills in a fun and enjoyable way. Participants later use mini-games to exhibit the learned skill from the earlier session. In the second half of the day participants then switched games and those that played football in the morning kit out in their helmet and hurley and vice-versa.
As part of the Vhi sponsorship of the Cúl Camps in 2007, each participant received a trendy jersey, shorts and socks and kit bag and fluid bottle on the first day of the camp. While there has yet to be confirmation on the gear provided for 2008 it is expected to be along the similar generous lines!
So, for the moment, take a note of the dates, and plan the family holidays around them! The application forms will be made available in the coming months and will be distributed through the school at Upper Glanmire, as well as various other points in the locality.
In the meantime there would be no better preparation for your child(ren) for the Camp than the weekly football coaching sessions taking place at the Upper Glanmire Community Field. These sessions take place each Sunday morning from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. These sessions are open to anyone aged between 5 and 11 years , with both boys and girls very welcome.
With the harsh and wet rain of recent months hopefully well behind us now, it is the ideal chance for your child(ren) to get in some valuable exercise in the open air. The emphasis is on fun, as the children learn the skills of our great Irish game, and what better way to have fun than in the company of one’s own friends! Please do encourage your child(ren) to come along any given Sunday, and let them make up their own minds after that!
