Mum and Me/Dad and Me
Saturday, November 10, 2012
The Dad and Me/Mum and Me Hurling/Camogie Programme is an
initiative which is starting in November as a pilot scheme by the
Bray Emmets Academy. The initiative consists of a 4 week programme
whereby the mother or father will accompany her daughter or son to
their usual training session and take part. The Programme will take
place at 10.15am on Saturday mornings on the 3G in Emmet Park
beside the Academy training. Helmets and hurls will be provided on
the morning for parents. A tutor is appointed to look after the
parents whilst the children go with their usual coach.
For the first 20 minutes of the session parents will learn a new
skill of the game and practice it before heading out to join their
sons and daughters to pass on this knowledge and skill for the next
20 minutes. (These skills will not be difficult and very easy to
pick up). This is an opportunity for dads and mums to
learn the basic skills of Hurling/ Camogie and coaching as well as
having great fun with their son or daughter. There is also a social
aspect whereby you will get to know the other parents on the team.
Bray Emmets are running this programme for our Academy, Under 8
Camogie and Hurling groups. Conor Britton will be the tutor on the
course and the programme will run for 4 weeks commencing 10th
If you are interested in taking part or if you require any
further information, you can contact Paul Sweeney on 086 3934273.There are
only a few spaces on this course and booking is recommended.
Mum and Me Camogie continues on Monday evenings 7.30pm. All
newcomers are always welcome.
