Recommendations for all Juvenile teams


•1. Block Training:- That all teams train once in six weeks with the team above and below them in Hurling and Football. This will give all mentors an idea of what talent we have in the club for Féile and championship teams. It will also give variety to the sessions with both sets of mentors planning the sessions. The players will get used to a different voice and get to know players on other teams, mentors can exchange ideas on coaching. This should also apply to the ladies football and camogie teams.


•2. Coaching Panel:-The coaching panel is in place for any mentors looking to vary their sessions, this panel consists of senior hurling and football club players who can give advice and their experience will add value to the mentors coaching. The coaching panel is in place to monitor the progress of teams in training and games and to report back to the club coach Martin Nolan. The coaching panel consists of Barry Hehir, Neill O`Connor, Pauric Whelan, Tony Canning, Clare Burke, Darren O`Neill. Who will cover games and training sessions.


•3. Statistic Sheets:- Mentors of all teams should keep stat sheets of all games, one of the management team designated to keep the stats. This will help to organise training sessions and show the need to work on what we are not good at during games. It also acts as a record of games, results, team selections etc. Mentors should always keep a record of attendances at all training sessions and games.


•4. Senior Hurlers:- From time to time senior hurlers will work with juvenile teams in a effort to improve standards and assist mentors. Alan Maher, Ciaran Hehir, Diarmuid O`Donnell, Dean Flood.


•5. Backing up Teams:- Mentors should encourage players on their teams to back the team above them when required. As for one reason or another teams struggle to field at times during the year.



•6. Loss of Players:- All players who leave the club every effort should be made to contact the parents/guardians and ask for reasons why, we may be able to find the reasons for players leaving and retain some of these players.
