Cork Schools Skills Competition Hurling & Football

GAA Skills Tests for Primary Schools

On  Wed 16th May 2018, Rebel Óg Coaching and Games held their annual Primary School Skills competition in Pairc Ui Chaimh. With amazing weather and a lot of schools ready for the competitions it was a great day.  At 10am we started our football skills competition in which we had ten primary schools take part. We followed this after the break with over fifteen primary schools taking part in the Hurling Skills Competition. This is an exciting initiative which gives schools of all sizes a chance to demonstrate their skills. The skills were measured on a team basis with 3 players per team and each player doing the skills involved
