Faughs GAA Club

Hi all, welcome to the Faughs U13 homepage

 

 

2016:

Training: Training for the U9s has now commenced on the Astro, Tuesdays from 6.15-7.00pm.  We have commenced a text service of advising parents of training.  If you have not received a text please advise Tom (086-3831779) and you will be added to the distribution list.

New players: Like all teams in Faughs we are anxious to welcome all new players.  You are most welcome to come along to one of our training evenings and chat with any of the coaches.

Matches: Hurling matches are every second week alternating with Football. All home matches will be played in Kimmage ManorOur matches are governed by the U9 Go-games rules http://www.dublingaa.ie/juvenile/regulations.  The actual match dates are as follows:-

Club Gear: Each player sources their own playing kit which is available from the Club Shop (see web page). Shop opening hours are Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6.30-7.30pm. We also strongly recommend that all players use shin guards to minimise the impact of the most common injury!!. When choosing a hurley, please do not buy one that is too long as this can hinder skill development – if in doubt ask a mentor / coach.

Registration:   This can be done online.  Forms can also be downloaded from faughs.ie or faughsjc.ie and given to any mentor.

Prices for this year are.
1 child €100
2 children €150
3 children €170
4 children or more €180

In order to ensure that all players are insured, we would ask you to get registered with the club as soon as possible.

Mentors:  If you would like to get involved in the training and / or matches please contact Tom (086-3831779) or Tommy (086-8114643).  The more parents that are involved (hurling skills are not a requisite) the greater enjoyment the kids get out of playing hurling at this age.
