2016 Boys – Parents Update
 
 
Welcome back to everyone after the all too short summer break!
 
Normally it’s a good time to reflect on the year so far before we head into the second part of the season… which so far has been great. We now have 52 active players at U11 and on the evidence of our matches this season it has been great to see how well the boys have developed through the year. Highlights have included 
Visiting to Croke Park, 
Hosting Danesfort hurlers from Kilkenny
Hurling trip to Birr and watching the subsequent Dublin V Galway game
Getting to the final of the Ballyboden A hurling invitational, and most recently 
Winning in the Camaint finals in Parnell Park  
It was also great to see so many of the boys involved with Belgove School’s Junior football and hurling teams that were so successful over the last year.  
 
As mentors, our objective will continue to focus on the development of your boy as an individual and as part of the group. Our collective goal is to enable him to reach his full potential as both a footballer & a hurler. We also want him to enjoy himself. In assessing the boys we will also continue the emphasis on the three A’s
 
Attitude - Listening, doing what you are asked, trying your best, helping your team mates, respecting your opponents, mentors and refs  
Attendance - At training and matches on time and being ready to play
Ability - In terms of skills, fitness and team play 
 
Looking forward, the move into fully competitive leagues at U12 is fast approaching. This will be a significant change from Go Games which we have been playing for the last few years. We want to update you on some important points arising:
 
Grading games in both Football and Hurling will take place in the early part of next year for each of our three squads; results from these matches will determine which division each squad will be in across both hurling and football. 
 
The league season will then formally commence in April and run for the remainder of the year.
 
As many of you will have seen in the matches played this year, the standard of both football and hurling has increased considerably. While we have competed well, it’s important that the boys continue to progress. 
 
Before confirming the squads for the grading games, we will be re assessing all players, in both Football and Hurling, over the course of the rest of the year, so it will be important that your son keeps working on the three A’s - this is something that we will be talking to the boys about in the next week. 
 
In order to help, we would ask parents to encourage attendance at training - training really is the key for player development. 
 
We have tracked attendance at training for the last year and there is a clear correlation between attendance and progress that the boys make. In addition there will be a particular focus on Strength and Conditioning for the next period which, given the boys age, will be really important not only for their physical development but also for injury prevention.  
 
After the great success of our hurling trip away, we are planning a further day trip outside Dublin for a Football Challenge before the end of the year - we will circulate details when plans have been confirmed. 
 
Good news is also that the club have secured access to St Pauls until Christmas so our home matches on Saturday will continue to be held there 
 
We think everyone will agree that three new sets of jerseys have great, we have noticed that one of the jerseys,  a red No.11, has gone missing; so we would ask you to check to see if you have this and return it to a mentor 
 
Finally we would like to thank all the parents that help out with lifts, pitch set up and jersey washing etc. throughout the year. We are all volunteering to give our children a positive experience, helping with these tasks makes coaching an even more enjoyable experience for us mentors.
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the mentors. Contact details are on the website, but please make contact outside of work hours.

Match Reports

Mentors and Coaching

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.

  • All coaches are parents of players and are members of the club.
  • Please be respectful of the coaching staff during our training sessions and match fixtures. 
  • Please arrive on time.  This makes our job a lot easier and in turn a more enjoyable experience for the kids.
  • We openly encourage parents to get involved, support and encourage all of the kids regardless of ability.
  • We would however ask that you and your child listen to and follow instructions given by the mentors.

If you are interested in Coaching? 

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!


House Keeping

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.
