2008 Boys News
Mini Blitz this Saturday (25th April) in Naomh Barrog grounds (Kilbarrack).
10-11am. Please be there by 9:45
Raheny GAA is entering five under 7 teams (2008’s) s into the Gormanston indoor hurling tournament. This is our 6th year participating in the tournament and it has been a fantastic success in other years especially at this age when we are starting to form a team for the first time. The tournament runs for 6 weeks from Sunday 18th January to Sunday February 22nd in Gormanston
College. The under 7 matches are at 11.30am and 12.00 noon. You will be texted the time to meet for your sons match before Sunday. Each team will meet in the balcony in the sports hall in Gormanston each week about 20-30 minutes before each match.
I will text you requesting confirmation of attendance in the coming days.
The matches are 10 a side lasting 25 minutes with no half time. The cost is €10 per player and this covers the full 6 weeks. This can be paid to one of the Raheny mentors over the course of the next few weeks. This cost covers entrance costs and purchase of some new indoor hurleys. No need to bring a hurley as we supply the special indoor hurleys. Kids should wear a tracksuit bottoms rather than shorts, runners, and bring a water bottle. Don’t forget shin guards if he has them.
Please try and link up with other parents to share lifts
