1 v 1 Challenge
1 v 1 Challenge is a new concept is currently being piloted in Cork City by GDA Colm Crowley to encourage boys to pick up their hurleys more often. The “ 1 V 1 Challenge” sees boys striking to score goals on their opponent while trying to defend shots to their own goals. There will be 4 competitions at u15, u13, u11 and u9.
The hope is that each coach will encourage their players to take part in it, and use a few minutes at the end of trainings to practice. Colm Crowley GDA noted “If we get the kids used to striking the ball a bit harder and accurately and encourage the use of catching the ball it will be of major benefit.” “The plan is to run the competition internally in clubs some night before the 15th August, and after that we will host the City finals on Saturday 22nd of August.” If any club requires Colm to come out to the club and explain/run internally for an age group, then let him know and he will do his best to facilitate
