Camaint is a non competitive hurling tournament held over four weeks in June-July. It is aimed at all levels.
It is particularly good for hurlers who have not yet made the breakthrough to full air hurling as the first half of each half in the game is ground hurling.
Teams are blended and it is great fun.
We are putting in one team only as many boys will be away.
If interested and your boy is around you might RSVP to the Teamer invites for the individual four fixture evenings that will be issued.
Spaces aare limited and as such are available on first come first served basis.
The U11s will play on:
Training times change this week until the summer break. Monday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 21 next to Sybil Hill Friday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 30 next to Rose Garden.
As you will know we have three fabulous new sets of Clontarf jerseys for each of our squads kindly sponsored by Sherry Fitzgerald - anyone that saw them last Sunday will agree that they look great on the boys. When the weather is good we will arrange for a team photo before one of the matches that we can then provide to everyone.
Each of these sets are numbered team jerseys that will be provided on each match day for the boys - as we need to have these washed after each match we would ask parents if they could co operate and please assist us by taking a set of jerseys to wash - a mentor will arrange for this after every match - we will keep a record of this so that all parents have the opportunity to help out.
Thanks for your help on this.
Thanks to everybody for turning up on a freezing cold Sunday for the photo shoot
Just come down to one of our training sessions
Training days are still Monday to Friday but training times are now 18:40 to 19:30
A juvenile member had their bicycle stolen from training at the clubhouse recently. Please pass onto parents and players that bicycles should be locked while attending training or matches.
Please ensure your child has adequate lights - it may be bright when they start training but it is pitch dark when they are finished.
As we have moved to 3 teams from two sets of two teams we have made changes to our Teamer setup. If you are no longer getting teamer messages please let us know.
You should be able to modify your account details if necessary at teamer.net
For hurling please remember hurley, helmet and shin pads. Knuckle protective gloves are also recommended for the non hurley hand (i.e. if you are right handed you need a left handed glove)
Coaching is done on a volunteer basis and the mentors do so as a way to contribute to the community of Clontarf and surrounding areas.
We need more help for the 2016 season. So if you are bored standing on the side line or if you feel that you can make a positive contribution please volunteer to get involved. It is a great way to spend time with your child and be part of the community.
We can do with all the help we can get and don’t worry it only looks like hardwork!
Upcoming weekend fixtures are typically send out by Teamer Alerts and posted to this web page on the Tuesday/Wednesday prior to our matches. But please check the website on Friday evenings in case there are any late changes / cancellations.
It is important that we arrive on time to both home and away fixtures, so the players can warm up and hit the ground running when throw in comes.
