U-16 Girls All Ireland7's

St Joseph's U16 Girls-

 

 

 

 

 

All Ireland 7's

 

Our U16 girls represented the club at the All Ireland 7s in County Clare on the first weekend in September. Playing teams from Kildare, Cork, Mayo, Galway and Clare in the league stages. We played well losing by less that 2 points 3 times in high scoring games and winning one match well. Not qualifying for the knockout stages. But some beach therapy and a surfing session at Spanish Point rounded off the weekend in good spirits. Special thanks to Sport Lisburn for support, parents who supported, the coaches, the youth committee, and to the girls for fundraising efforts and for their brilliant behaviour over the entire weekend and season. A credit to their club and families.

Festival Committee

The Festival Committee would like to pass on our appreciation to everyone who made the Club's 3rd Annual Festival a great success.  From those who assisted with setting up ahead of the weekend and packing up on Monday, to the many volunteers who took on roles during the various events, such as door admissions, crowd management, the big breakfast preparation and serving, bar work, hospitality, car park stewarding, clearing up and overnight security.   

 

Without the support of all those involved and everyone who came out and attended the various events, the weekend would simply not have happened so a big thank you to one and all.

 

Finally we would like to acknowledge the contributions made by The Fiddlers Inn, Gerry Hyland Solicitors, Denny, Glenavy Wine Flair, Sara and Neil McCann, The Cabbage Patch, Fruitvale Farm and Hunky Dorys. Their support is greatly appreciated.

Rules for U8 & U1o Blitzs

 

 Coaching Aim:

To improve the standard of primary school  football in the SW through organised games that help children to become better team players. All children that turn up for a club, and are within the age groups playing, must participate in the games at some stage. It is the intention that every club in the SW should play against each other at this age level. FOCUS IS ON THE PLAYERS’ DEVELOPMENT AND NOT THE RESULTS OF THE GAMES.

 

Aim of set up:

  • A club will host 6/7 other clubs (all 15 clubs play on each date)
  • No record of wins etc/ no league format (aim is merely to facilitate games)
  • The teams are split into groups and the groups will meet at different venues each fortnight.
  • Central locations have been identified for clubs at the edges to meet in order to cut down on traveling.
