On August 26th The University of Notre Dame will be playing against the US Naval Academy at the Aviva Stadium. This marks a historic occasion as it will be the first time the University of Notre Dame hosts a home game in Ireland. The week leading up to the game will be brimming with over 50 engaging events, all falling under the theme #MuchMoreThanAGame.

The University's football program has presented an extraordinary opportunity that we are keen to facilitate for Kilmacud Crokes.

A coaching clinic tailored for children aged 8 to 12 is being offered. The clinic is scheduled for Friday, August 25th, from 10.00 AM to 11:15 AM at Pairc De Burca, Glenalbyn. Our young participants will have the privilege of being coached by 40 Notre Dame football players, who will be present in uniform on the side lines (not playing in Saturday's game). Our goal is to involve 100 of our young players, and there is no participation fee. The players will be selected by our coaches and represent a cross section of the under age memebership. The Notre Dame Football players will lead the entire clinic, sharing their expertise and skills. Towards the end of the session, Kilmacud Crokes will host a brief 10-minute GAA coaching clinic, introducing the Notre Dame players to the excitement of Hurling & Football.

Members are invited to come along  and cheer on our visitors and under age players  during the clinic. It should be a really novel engaging event. Lets give the Notre Dame visitors a real KIlmacud Crokes Cead Mile Failte Welcome !!!

See you on Friday August 25th at 10am
