The Cayman Islands Kids Gaelic Football Club is thrilled to introduce the addition of another COOL Camp to the calendar: a 3-day camp during the Halloween Mid Term Break from Wednesday 24th October to Friday 26th October at the Camana Bay CIS Football Pitch.
Earlier this year we had our February Mid-Term and Easter COOL Camps taking place, with over 60 kids in attendance at both camps.  We also hosted our “Summer Blitz Days” over May and June.  
The children came from several schools on island, and there was a great mix of nationalities in each team. The youngsters gave lots of positive feedback following these sessions, enjoying both using skills they had learned in other sports, along with learning new Gaelic techniques. Some children had previously played in previous Gaelic COOL Camps, while others came from netball, soccer and rugby backgrounds and found it easy to adapt these experiences to Gaelic Football.
The coaches were also very enthusiastic and excited at the talent that was displayed by some of the children who had never even seen the sport before or had never played a team sport. Many parents also participated in the session and were enquiring about more regular fixtures.
In the next COOL Camp, the training will start with a basic warm up for all players, followed by a quick fun game to get everyone familiar with catching and throwing the Gaelic Football. The coaching will then move on to learning a couple of specific techniques used in Gaelic Football, followed by a chance to practice these new skills in drills. To further develop these practices, a short, fun-orientated game for each age group will take place to challenge the players to incorporate their new skills into the team play environment. Finally, a competitive game will close the session.
It is going to be another action packed three days focusing on learning and developing the Gaelic Football skills of running, passing, kicking, tackling along with movement and agility skills and, of course, teamwork and friendship.  All are welcome and no prior experience is necessary. 
As with all our other Camps and Blitz Days, we have indoor facilities at CIS so regardless of weather conditions the Camp will go ahead and the kids will be comfortable and within a safe environment.
The Camp details are:
Wednesday 24th Oct to Friday 26th Oct 
8.30am to 12noon
