The Under 11 team is for girls born in 2007 or in 4th class in National school (2017/2018 school year).
GO GAMES rules apply for this age group. The aim at this age is to learn and develop skills in a friendly, fun and supportive environment. Matches and blitzes are non competitive with the emphasis on participation and enjoyment rather than winning.
Training takes place every Thur, 6.30pm – 7.30pm on the astro at St. Paul’s Secondary School, Limekiln Lane and each Sat 5.00 – 6.00pm on the astro at the Faughs clubhouse.
The Saturday sessions are extremely important as it’s our only training slot with access to the ballwall.
Our matches/Blitzes are scheduled by the Dublin Camogie Board and will this year take place on Sundays.
For full information on all matches and throw in times etc as well as any changes to training times or venues please forward your email address if you haven’t already done so to email@example.com Roisin has created a very handy calendar that can keep you up to date on all events related to the U11s.
Fixtures are also sent out to all parents or guardians via our parents WhatsApp group.
The Golden Rule
None of our team should currently be using hurls any bigger than 26″, for some of them a 24″ would suffice and here’s why.

Posted by Clonmel Og Hurling & Football Club on Saturday, July 29, 2017
It’s very important to make sure your daughter is playing Camogie with the correct size hurl. Do not seek advice from sports shops staff as they are usually clueless and invariably advise towards a longer hurl that will be unsuitable. A hurley is not something that you can grow into and should NEVER be measured to your hip. Short and light is always the best option for young girls and boys learning how to play. The lighter the weight the better as young wrists are often put under undue stress with heavy oversized hurls. Oversized and heavy hurls hold back development at a time when they need to be mastering the basics of the game. If you are unsure or require any further information please don’t hesitate in contacting Richie or Colm for advice.
The season opener for 2018 was a trip to Walkinstown to take on Good Counsel. With 2 experimental age-related sides going up against their counterparts from Counsel we managed to come away with 2 wins from 2 on a freezing cold morning. More photos are available by clicking on the link below.
PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
Please encourage your daughters to practice at home as much as possible. The difference between kids who are good at sport and those who are not is purely down to how much practice they do, “natural talent” has nothing to do with it !. Hit a tennis ball around the garden or up against a wall, practice throwing and catching. The hurley should always be held in their dominant (writing) hand. Throw and catch with the non dominant hand.

** A FEW PICS FROM OUR LATEST TRIP TO JUMP ZONE **
What a great way to finish up the 2016 season. We more than held our own taking 4 wins from six matches against strong Kilmacud Crokes and Naomh Olaf teams. Olaf’s have to be congratulated for their running of this blitz and a big thankyou to them for supplying medals and goodie bags for all the girls.
Away Day ~ 2016
We would just like to say a big Thankyou to our hosts, Portlaoise G.A.A. club for putting on an incredible blitz for the girls. A great day was had by all and everything went very smoothly, thanks in no small part to all the parents who came along with us.
The three victorious Faughs Celtic teams that took part in this weeks blitz. Going away to face three determined teams from BBSE, the girls came away with a clean sweep, 9 wins from 9 games. Congratulations to all the girls that took part and to their parents for the support from the sidelines.
Almost full attention for the Jump Zone instructors as they run through their safety briefing before the girls take over the building…
