UNDER 11 HURLING/CAMOGIE GO GAMES MODEL
In 2012 each school, which chooses to enter the Under 11 Competition, will be graded according to the size of the school, past history of success, tradition and the strength of that particular game in that area of the county. When the school has been graded, blitzes will be set up within each grade. The groups for the blitzes will be comprised so that teams will be geographically grouped together to cut down on travel.NB..SCHOOLS CAN ENTER TWO TEAMS AT UNDER 11 THIS YEAR. They can have a second team (reserve team) if their numbers allow. If their first team is in Roinn A, then the second team will be in Roinn A1. If their first team is in Roinn B, their second team will be in Roinn B1. And so on. Roinn A1, B1, C1 and D1 will consist of ONLY school’s reserve teams / 2nd teams.
EACH MATCH IN THE BLITZ WILL BE PLAYED UNDER GO-GAMES / MINI GAMES RULES.
This will improve striking skills from the hand, ground and overhead.
It will also make the games even more exciting, as the sliothar will be moving quickly around the pitch.
NB…EACH Substitute must play at least half of each game.
If schools don’t play all their subs, in all their games, they will be eliminated from the competition.
STEPS TO ESTABLISHING CLUB-SCHOOL LINKS
1. Ensure that the club has a dedicated School Liaison Officer (SLO). The SLO should be selected after considering availability to visit the school during school hours and communication skills. (If there is a club member teaching in the school he/she should not be asked to be SLO)
2. The SLO and club Chairperson could arrange to meet the principal and teacher with responsibility for sport/games.
3. Agree points of contact for club and school. 4. Outline the club’s work at underage as well as the Go Games Programme which promotes participation for all children.
5. Establish what support the school requires in terms of:
6. Formalise arrangements regarding mutual use of each other’s facilities.
7. Establish (and keep up to date) a GAA notice-board in the school with information on Club Blitzes, Ú Can (Skill) Awards, GAA Cúl Camps, Cumann na mBunscol activities etc.
8. Provide a calendar of club events e.g. registration days, Go Games Blitzes etc. and keep up to date with school events.
9. Liaise with the County Games Manager and the school to keep up to date with school initiatives including the GAA Céim ar Aghaidh Education Resource, GAA Fun Do Coaching Pack, Cúl4kidz magazine and the Schools Coaching programme.
10. Circulate a club newsletter to the school children to encourage them to become involved in the club.
11. Host schools Go-Games blitz at the club pitch and hold a follow up event on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
