Collegeland GAC Notes – 5 February 2013

Registration/Membership Day 10 February.

This is an open invitation to adults and youth members to our Club Membership Day on Sunday 10 February in the Clubrooms between 2.00 and 5.00pm.   A reminder that the Club provides for young people from under 8 right through to under 21 through Naomh Eoin and the Collegeland Camogie club. Youth membership is £5 and adults start at £30. More thirty-pound members are welcome but we also need another few more Gold members at £10 per month or £120 per year. You could win our Monthly Draw prize of £100.

See you on Sunday 10 Feb  or  you can  contact Brian McGeary, Registrar;  Frank Donnelly, Chair;  Tommy Mitchell, Secretary ; Kieran Hayes, Treasurer; or Sean Maguire, Assistant Treasurer;  or your usual Club contact.

We  thank those parents and family members who already support the underage activities in a number of different ways.  We would hope to see more families of our young Naomh Eoin and camogie players from the area as our Collegeland Club members.  Sometimes people are wary of joining a Club in case they are expected to do something extra but at the same time wanting the Club to provide their children with training and football/camogie.

Senior Football

The football season is fast approaching and the Monday night fitness/gym training  continues next Monday in Armagh.  The weekly Friday night football training season begins this weekend – indoors for now.  Contact Team Managers  or Sean McNicholl, Assistant Secretary,  for  directions and information.

Coaching Talk.  A very informative  Coaching Talk was held last Saturda  led by Paddy Mohan,  explaining  what is  involved and giving some pointers on how to work with children and parents.  Interested  then please contact  John McGeary, Coaching officer on 079 1716 3022 or Frank Donnelly Chairman.
