Go Games – Boys Football & Hurling 2007
Since our group started in the nursery we have been training and playing in blitzes as preparation for our first official GAA games – “Under 8 Go Games” starting in Feb-15. Over the coming weeks we will be allocating the boys into 6 teams of 8-10 players per team. In keeping with the spirit of Go Games, each of the 6 teams will have a mix of abilities and each player will be encouraged to play in different positions. From Feb-15 each team will play 2 x 20 minute games of football / hurling every second Saturday alternating between home and away.
Our participation in the U8 Go Games is on a 50% basis so that each week we will have half of the 2007 group playing games and the other half training. This means that for each 4 week period a player will play one Football match, one Hurling match and have two training sessions on a Saturday. Mid-week training will also start from Feb 15.
