News: Wednesday 16th June 2020 - **** Planning for RETURN TO PLAY from 29th June :)  ****

*** Activities Suspended until 29th June: Following guidance from the government, the HSE, Dublin GAA and our club, all group training activity is suspended until 29th June, in line with current guidance on social distancing to combat the spread of COVID-19.

*** "Cancelled" football/hurling Grading matches: Matches we have missed in recent weeks will be played when the Dublin Juvenile CCC2 committee has set new dates for them, hopefully from 30th July. It appears that we may be able to organise some training matches and Challenge matches starting from 20th July.

Hi Boys and Parents! We hope you are all keeping safe and well!

As we shared with you this week in Monday's video message, it is looking very hopeful that we will be able to get back to some group training activities from 29th June, in line with the GAA's roadmap for phased Return to Play and with the government's plan for re-opening.  This will be non-contact training for the moment, until the next phase, and we will be required to train in smaller groups and follow strict procedures before joining any group session. It will be different to how we are used to training - but we are looking forward to it all the same! It has been a LOOOONG break!!

 

In the mean time, we want each of you boys to start preparing for our return to play by working on some basic skills and on your fitness and strength.

We will share some skills you can focus on - which you can practice every day - to get our minds and bodies back in the game -  and especially to get our confidence going again, working off both our left and right sides.

Below, also are some useful links which you should try a couple of times a week to get your body back in tune with some regular exercise . We all know, at this stage, how important strength and fitness are to help us keep our focus and to "stay in the game" in matches. You will recognise the material below as we have used it in training sessions before the break - with you guys giving it socks!  Well done, of course, to everyone who has been keeping hmself going with his own skills work and exercise routine. Maith Sibh!

So, here goes ....

 

Warm up - To warm up key muscles before training/play, we use the following warm up session.

 

  • Set out two marks 15m apart
  • Repeat each exercise twice

Agility & Fitness

 

  • Back to basics – Forward bear crawl on hands and feet 15m. Backward crawl on hands/feet 15m. Do twice.

 

 

Set cones/markers 10 m apart (First exercise).

Repeat four times.

 

 

End of session. 

 

This session can be repeated every 2/3 days for the next couple of weeks. Rest and a gradual build up is important too.
