In 2017 the 2006 boys will play U11!
Winter training: Back training for the U11s in Club astro on Wednesdays from 6.45-7.45. Encourage the boys to pick up the hurley when at home or on play dates etc – the more often they pick it up the more they will improve..
U11 MATCHES 2017
Games will be 9-11 a side and the boys will be allowed to rise and hit the ball out of their hands for the whole match. This year there will be one match squad with three teams and the intention is to maximize game time for all the boys as per this year.
New players: Like all teams in Faughs we are anxious to welcome all new players, so if you are under 11 in 2017 (born in 2006) you are most welcome to come along to one of our training evenings and chat with any one of the coaches.
If any of the boys are getting a new hurley, please ensure that it is not too big as it will hinder their skill development (max size advised for this group is 30 inch). Some people are using the cultic hurleys which are available from www.cultec.ie and find these a better option than the traditional ash hurley. If in doubt ask one of the coaches. See main website page for opening times for the shop.
