With the holidays over and the start of the new school year upon us, now is a great time to get your child(ren) involved in a regular exercise routine! Whether they be new or lapsed members all are very welcome to the weekly White’s Cross GAA hurling and football coaching sessions, which cater for both boys and girls of all ages attending national school.
Throughout the entire summer season the sessions for 5 to 10 year olds inclusive have been taking place on Friday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at the Club grounds. Training for 11 to 13 year olds inclusive takes place on Sunday mornings from 11am to 12 pm, at White’s Cross also. However we are all excited about moving into a new base for the winter season, now that the outstanding new sports hall at Upper Glanmire is soon to open for business. This huge indoor facility gives us a first class indoor training facility, which will be used for training both hurling and football to all of these age groups. For obvious reasons training times are subject to change when we move indoors. Thus if you are thinking of sending your child up to us for the first time, and not on our group text lists, be sure to confirm the training schedule. Contact Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org with your queries.
Watch out also for details of the upcoming registration night also the coming weeks. This is an evening event where we meet with the children and their parents / guardians to ensure that we have correct details on the individual – regarding contact details, guardian details, medical conditions etc.
Our Under 13 football side has come through a very tough group winning 4 of their 6 games to qualify for a league semi final against Crosshaven, which will be played in early September. The team narrowly lost to Dripsey in the championship semi final. The squad will be full of confidence for the league semi final and if they play as they have played all year then this team has every chance of winning silverware this season. This team will also contest the U13 hurling championship final against Dripsey during September and their management team of Ciarán Allen, Ger Hayes and Rick Burke have been preparing this side diligently throughout the entire year
