Secondary School Blitz 7/5/15

Report from Ulster Camogie Development Officer

A joint initiative between Na Magha GAA and Camogie Association promoted camogie participation in the local secondary schools in Derry City.

Enda McDermott provided 6 weeks coaching in 4 secondary schools- Thornhill College, St Brigids, St Marys and St Cecilias to year 8/9 classes with the emphasis of providing girls with more opportunity to playing camogie during and after school.

Participants from 4 schools

Na Magha club has already a strong link within the feeder schools and currently provide ongoing assistance year round within schools in Derry City. The long term aim is for the 60 girls who participated in ‘Have a Go’ blitz will feed into Na Magha club structure and experience regular games and training through the club. Well done to all the girls who participated in the day demonstrating high level of skill and teamwork throughout 2hours of camogie in Na Magha pitch.

Many thanks to Enda McDermott for providing the coaching block, Sharon McCullagh and Donna McCloskey for ongoing support from Na Magha club as it continues to go from strength to strength. Finally thanks to Shane McCann and Paul Callaghan Ulster GAA Active Clubs co-ordinators.
