Mentors will run training sessions on our Club House Astro Pitch every Thursday from 18:00 to 19:00

 Matches commence end of March and we will schedule approximately two per month.

All girls must now be registered as Faughs players. Otherwise they will not be insured to train or play matches.

The girls love the matches. The Most important thing at this age is Fun. If they have fun, they will want to come back again.

Parents, At Games Please try not to focus on scoring.  Rather ask them ‘how many times did you strike or touch the ball?’  This is an important aspect which we hope you will apply.

A serious point – Criticism or negativity of any type is discouraged (directed at any player, referee or anyone else involved or on the sideline). Remember none of us would like public humiliation, so why would an 11 year old be any different?  Mistakes are a necessary part of learning.  Also remember, as mentors, we are all unpaid volunteers.

Please encourage your kids in sport, and try as many team sports as they (and you!) possibly can. Specialising in any single sport at a young age is not recommended.

Remember “Come practice” is much more attractive than “Go Practice”.  Sport provides a great and cheap opportunity for you to interact with your child.


There are a few simple things that you can do to help the girls in their camogie “careers”;- 

(1) Learn and coach the correct grip, as this is by far the most important bit for them to get right in the next year,

(2) “Come Practice” regularly,

(3) Try not miss training or matches and actively encourage them when you are there – they need the reassurance of your presence!

(4) Bring your daughters to sporting events, (preferably involving female role models). “If they want to be it, they’ve got to see it!”.
