Ladies Football Underage Update - 28th March 2012
March 28, 2012
Ballincollig Ladies Football had a very exciting week this week, with our Junior team winning their first two league games of 2012 and our under 12 panel travelling to Newtownshandrum to compete in a Munster Go-Games Blitz. The weather was fantastic for playing football and it was wonderful to see such great turnouts consistently to all our training sessions.
Under 10: Training continues for these girls (ages 7 - 10 years) every Monday from 5.30-6.30 on Pitch 3. Manager - Maria McCarthy (contact no. 086-1582492). Monday evenings are very busy on Pitch 3, with a fantasitc turn-out for our under 10 panel. We have well over 40 girls now playing at this age level and the girls are broken into several groups at training, depending on their level of experience. There has been a big improvement over the past few weeks in the girl's hand-passing, soloing, and kicking. Remember girls to practice at home as much as you can! It is important that the girls bring water to their training sessions and the County Board recommends the wearing of gum-shields (available to buy in the local sport shops). Parents, please drop your girls to and from the pitch. With the weather improving, we hope to arrange some matches for these girls in the coming weeks. New members are always welcome to join.
Under 12: Training continues on Mondays and Thursdays from 6.30-7.30 on Pitch 3. Manager - Deidre Dore (contact no. 087-9040741). A panel of twelve of our under 12 team, headed off recently to Newtownshandrum for the Munster Go-Games blitz in Newtownshandrum, (please see article on same). Our girls improved in confidence as the day went on, playing two teams from Tipperary, Donoughmore and Eire Og. There was a great display of skill on the day as the girls put all their hard-training into practice.
Under 14: Training contines on Monday and Thursdays from 6.30-7.30 on Pitch 3. Manager - Nicola Young (contact no. 085-2031773). This team have upcoming fixtures over the next fortnight and more information will be given to the girls at their training sessions.
