At the club's Youth AGM on Tuesday night January 8th, the following volunteers were confirmed in roles for 2013: Youth Chairperson: Damien McGovern,
Youth Secretary & Coaching Officer: Garry Smyth,
Minor: Damien McGovern and Hugh Kelly,
Under 16: Anthony Greene & Peter Jones,
Under 14: Dominic Corrigan and Martin Walmsley,
Under 12: Michael Glynn & David Burke,
Under 10: Sean Flanagan & Adrian McGovern,
FUNdamentals: Brendan Rasdale.
Each of these managers, particularly those in charge of the youngest three groups, hope to involve a number of parents or slightly older youth players to help them. This has proven to be a very beneficial arrangement in the past.
Thank you, and good luck to all our youth section volunteers this year. The meeting was a positive, energetic one, and other priorities discussed for this section of the club included a focused effort to contribute to the finances of the club, the gumshield rule, work to have more of our coaches Access NI registered, and looking to develop some more blitzes for other teams beyond our Under 10s.
