Naomh Éanna Cúl Camp 2016 – Iomaíocht
The beginning of August saw the beginning of Naomh Éanna’s second Cúl Camp of the summer.
The first week of August had 120 Cúl Camp participants and 20 Saffron Ógs, learning and practicing all the skills of the ancient Gaelic game of hurling.
”Cúl Camps provide boys and girls – between the u6 and u13 the age groups – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games
This camp is following on from the Football Cúl Camp at the beginning of July, with the county board confirming that that was the biggest camp in County Antrim (180 Cúl Camp Participants and 20 Saffron Ógs) for 2016.
The development and uptake of both hurling and football at the Glengormley club has been part of ongoing club development. Great emphasis has been put on coaching and coaching standards;
structures necessary to ensure high quality delivery and confident, capable young Gaels.
One of the the club’s local feeder schools (Gaelscoil Éanna) has an approximate 40% uptake of participants and there are high levels of uptake from other surrounding schools.
Coordinators, coaches, parents, grandparents and guardians play a vital role and Naomh Éanna is delighted to have their ongoing support.
