CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Our Rising Stars programme is continuing every week and we had 41 children last Saturday. The Rising Stars is a 6 week programme of fun indoor activities based on hurling and football to develop your child’s fundamental movement skills such as agility, balance, co-ordination, running, jumping, catching, and throwing. The programme takes place on Saturday mornings at Croom Sports Complex and is on for another 3 weeks starting at 10am and will last an hour. The programme is for boys and girls aged 3-6 and parental involvement during each class is encouraged. Anyone who missed the first few weeks are more than welcome to attend this Saturday.
Last Friday we held a very successful registration day. For those who missed it, you can still register by contacting Breda O’Dwyer. Players under 12 €20 U14 to U18 €25. Family membership €70 (includes 2 adults and children U18) Players over 18 €50. Non players €30. Please note that any player who has NOT paid their membership before training starts back will not be covered under the Player Injury Scheme until payment is received in full.
Unfortunately, due to lack of numbers, we will be unable to compete in this years championship. Thank you to the management for their efforts. All players will be able to play with the Minor and/or Intermediate teams throughout the year ahead.

Anyone interested in getting involved with coaching teams or helping out with their children as they start playing GAA, why not do one of the GAA’s coach education courses? These are taking place all over the county in Jan, Feb, and March. Last year we held a very successful Foundation course in Croom and this year we are hoping to host a Level 1 course.
