    Players have time to practice until Sunday 31st May.

    A parent or sibling can help to time the 30 seconds challenge.

    On Sunday the player should complete the challenge 3 times and the parent submits the best score to the local club mentor (individual scores will not be shared beyond the local mentors).

    The local team mentor will calculate the average score across all of the players and this will be the club’s score.

    All clubs will complete the challenge, send the results and we will collate each clubs score into league tables: camogie, hurling and combined.

    The club with the highest score wins this challenge.
