On the Saturday 18th March 2017, the DART Cayman Islands Kids Gaelic Football Club will host a free training and games session at the Camana Bay CIS Football Pitch. This event will encompass training of skill sets for each age group and culminate in a round robin of games. All children between the ages of 5 and 18 years old are welcome; the event is open to all children who have not played before and to those who attended the Start of Season Blitz in February. Registration is at 9.30am, with the training running until 11.30am. This event is free of charge to all.

As it is St Patrick’s Day on Friday March 17th, there is no better weekend for the kids to come out and celebrate by learning some Gaelic football! There will be some Irish themed games and activities to observe the celebration with Paddy’s Day fun for all ages! There will also be the chance to register for the DART Cayman Islands Kids Gaelic Football Club for games and training for the rest of the year, along with the initial sign up for the Easter Camp.

The inaugural Easter Gaelic Football Cúl Camp will take place on mornings of the 18th – 21st April 2017. This will include teaching by Mr. Colm Egan, full-time games development officer from the North American Gaelic Athletic Association, who delivered the Certified Foundation Level Coaching course to our own Kids Club Coaches in October, 2016. The Easter Gaelic Football Cúl Camp will provide boys and girls (5-14) with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the Easter holidays, which revolves around maximizing enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Football. Activities are player-centered using a Games Based approach with a strong emphasis being placed on personal development and well-being. 

The St. Patrick’s Blitz will give a taster of this as 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, with 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 environment. Finally, a competitive game will close the session, with the training finishing at 11.30am.
