The camps are structured so that a different aspect of the game is worked on each day. The programme involves coaching specific skills of the game and provide the opportunity for children to put into practice what they have learned through small sided games.
During the camp week, a “blitz” is organised to provide each child with an introduction to competitive games.
Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps – are organised throughout the summer from Monday to Friday, 09.00am to 2.30pm, in all 32 Counties and overseas. (see Camp venues for dates). Attendance is open to primary school children aged 6 years to 13 years.
The Cúl Camp is a highlight of the summer for many young children, and the excitement was amazing and helped by the team of roles models who assisted in ensuring the delivery of the Camp was to the highest level, as usual the Camp was coordinated by Director of Hurling Eugene McGoldrick and was facilitated by a very strong team of coaches, including Senior and Minor Hurlers.
In recent years the development process and progress set in motion to ensure the continuous development of hurling has been very evident, this can be demonstrated at a number levels, with Seniors players being integral part of the Antrim setup, players at representing Antrim at Minor, U17 and underage also participating in development squads at every underage level.
