U9 Parents Session with Peter Nash
It was great see a big turnout of our u9 parents for a session with Peter Nash Hurling Development Officer on Monday evening, 4th October. This age group are doing really well with skill development and parents got excellent advice from Peter on how to support them as they practice at home particularly in relation to holding the hurley correctly and raising and striking the sliotar. Peter also reminded us of the resources available to parents including the Limerick GAA Coaching YouTube channel where short videos are available demonstrating key skills which would be of huge benefit to all our underage players and parents. Many thanks to Peter for a fun and informative session and to all the parents who came out in the rain…real dedication on show! Thanks too to Mike Corrigan who organised.
