Offaly GAA Coaching & Games are excited to be holding an 11 week Faithful Óg Player Development Football Academy for 13 year olds beginning June the 15th(birthday 2003).
The aim of this academy is to develop these players through high quality coaching and introduce and prepare them for the development squad system, which they should be aspiring to be part of the u14 panel next year.
Players will receive
* Skills testing
* Skills sessions
* Game base training
* An introduction to strength & conditioning
* Nutritional advice
The academy will run for 11 weeks in a row with all players invited to attend all 11 weeks. These sessions are being run at the following time so they do not clash with fixtures.
Starting Wednesday 15th of June at 4pm in Mucklagh with GDAs Liam O’Reilly, Conor Clancy and Keith McGuinness.
Clubs are asked to send in their strongest 3-5 players who are in their last year at U13 level for this programme. The 2017 U14 Development squad will be formed following this Academy to enable the players get the benefits of the Development Squad S&C programme before Christmas.
Also should any club wish to come and observe the training techniques, take notes or talk to the coaches feel free to do so at any session. Any queries please do not hesitate to contact me at the details below.
