Juvenile Structures. We hope to have a Juvenile team league set up for the more advanced juveniles next week, we will be aiming to run the games of on Wednesday & Friday evenings beginning @ 7pm, it will be a mixture of girls & boys, we will still continue to do our coaching on each night for the juveniles but some times might change slightly to allow the Mono League to begin a bit earlier, can all coaches ask the juveniles and parents to ensure that their child is registered, this will cover for insurance proposes also.
Coaching Course. We held the foundation handball coaching course last Friday evening, it was a very enjoyable event, we would like to thank all the future coaches for attending including those from Corduff and the Harps club who joined us to endeavor to keep our game alive and well, we hope to possibly run the 2nd stage of the coaching structure in the early part of next year, we will notify all that attended this one to see if they are interested in progressing with it.
Mono League. The Mono League has it’s first week of play over, all seems to be on course and we ask all players to have all round of games played before the follow weeks is scheduled, registration will have to be paid ASAP, 40 Euro fee for the year, not only does this register you in the club for the year it is also your insurance cover for the year, so captains will be applying pressure on all team members to make sure they are all paid up in full.
Good Luck. To our club chairperson Christopher in the Golden Gloves Tournament over the weekend.
