Skills Development

[singlepic id=46 w=600 h=194 float=center]

These sports sessions are implemented over a number of weeks in order to develop the children’s skills in a particular sport.

We currently operate Skills Development Programmes in:

  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Gaelic Football
  • Volleyball
  • Hurling
  • Tag-Rugby
  • Cricket

These are structured programmes which provide the participants with an introduction to the basic skills of the chosen sport. The main skills of the sport will be broken down and taught in a way that children will find helpful, easy to understand and enjoyable.

Each sport is worked on in a number of consecutive weeks (depending on programme length), with sessions lasting 1 hour each, in order to allow the children time to progress the most important skills of the sport at a rate that suits each individual involved. Although the participants will be learning new skills the emphasis of these sessions will always be on fun!

Each programme will be designed and planned out to suit each seperate group of participants meaning that these programmes are suitable for even complete newcomers to a sport. At the end of the programme, each child will receive a Certificate of Participation and an Activity Pack containing puzzles, facts and tips about their sport.

When implemented in schools these programmes can form part of our “Three Stage – Skills Development Programme” where participants will have the opportunity to further develop their new skills over three stages. These stages are ideally carried out over a three year period, for example during 4th Class, 5th Class and 6th Class in order to gain our highest certificate.

These programmes are ideal for PE classes, extra curricular activities, youth clubs or sports teams.

NEW… We now have an extra stage in our skills development programmes. Children can now participate in an introductory programme prior to levels 1,2 and 3! This means that children as young as 4 years old can now join in the fun!!
