Grasshoppers takes place in the club’s GAA grounds on Saturday mornings at 10.30am till 11.30am. We are always happy to welcome new members.
The Grasshoppers age group is typically children between 4yrs and 6yrs, with the focus more on developing fundamental movement skills, delivered through a series of fun games, younger children may like to try out the games with parent’s support.
Our u7s academy currently train together 10.30am till 11.30am on Saturday mornings, the focus of the practice session is fun games that include more skill development with a football. Our u7s are due to enter an u8s mixed league ( girls and boys mixed team) in spring 2019, new members always welcome.
This section is coordinated by our club coaches, who are Garda Vetted, have completed a child safeguarding workshop and have a coaching qualification.
Our club’s GPO (games promotion officer) is Joe McBearty. Joe’s role here is to oversee activities being carried out and to help develop both coaches and the children.
