Club Notes 31st May

It’s been a very busy last couple of weeks with every age-group in both hurling  / football and camogie in full flow both training and matches. It is great to go back to the GAA field in Crecora any evening both during the week and at weekends as there is always one or multiple teams training and using the facilities including numerous matches each week in all codes and age groups.

On the GAA front , all our underage teams are actively training and playing both challenge matches and Blitz’s and numbers are very good turning up to training and matches. There are a great number of coaches working across these age groups , doing great work with the kids . It is very important for parents to encourage your child and to help them practice at home every evening . They say 10 to 15 minutes a day practicing rising the ball,  striking,  kicking football, catching etc will improve them no end. Playing sport is the same as school work. You learn the skills in school and then do your homework every evening. In sport , you learn the skills in training and then you practice every evening to become a better player and improve your skills. Please try to support all these teams at matches and support the coaches and all their hard and voluntary work. And the best support you can give them is by offering to help , be it to assist in the training sessions , help at matches by putting out the flags , putting up and taking down the nets , offering to wash jerseys . don’t wait to be asked. Offer to help and you will feel even more part of the team and the wider GAA community.

Under 14
On the competitive front our U14 have played two football matches so far. This is a young team with massive potential and while results have not exactly gone their way to date , they are an inspiration to any team with their commitment and determination to keep going no matter what the score. Nearly everyone turns up to training week on week and they continue to improve every week. They will have their first hurling match this Wednesday evening , a home game versus Kilmallock with a 6:15pm throw in so please come along to support this great bunch of players and coaches.

Under 16
U16’s in both hurling and football are training away with matches not resuming until after junior cert exams. Its great to still see good numbers at training even in the run up to the exams and with this commitment and both teams playing at top level Div 1 for the summer this training is vital for the next few weeks

Our Minor team are like the U16’s training away while on a break for Leaving cert from matches. Full program of matches will resume end June , start of July.

Our junior hurling and football teams are continuing to train away with some matches and some good results to date. A lot of the extended panel are currently facing exams but hopefully training away in preparation for matches later in the summer.

Limerick Camogie
Congratulations to all involved in Limerick camogie on their recent Munster Final success against a good cork outfit and for Crecora camogie and the community to be represented so well on this squad with players and coach is a fantastic achievement so well done to all involved.

U15 hurlers win Limerick Super 10s Final

Our U15’s played Div 1 Hurling and narrowly missed out on reaching the county Div 1 final to a very strong Ballyhoura Gaels team , however they recently competed in a Super 10’s hurling tournament in Limerick and won that so they now go on to represent both club and county at the Munster Finals of this tournament on June 10th in Mallow.

This is a huge achievement for the players and Club. It’s not very often any player gets to represent themselves and their club in a Munster tournament so they deserve great appreciation for their efforts to date.
