Coaching Development Programme, Summer 2013

Summer Coaching Development Programme for our Youth players (U13 - U18)


The Hurling Coaching & Games Youth Committee are delighted to announce this Summer's Coaching Development Programme for our Youth players (U13 - U18). 

The programme is aimed at developing our players in areas such as lifestyle and nutrition, Hurling skills acquisition & Athletic Development.  The programme will run for six weeks, with players required to attend sessions three mornings in the week.  Within the programme players will get a chance to work and develop their speed & running technique, while also developing their hurling skills to a high level. 

Included will be guest sessions from some of the current Dublin Senior Hurling players. 

The programme is also aimed at educating our players in the areas of Athletic Development & healthy lifestyle.  In the athletic development sessions the emphasis will be mainly focused towards injury prevention.  Players will be functionally assessed and will be given exercise programs that will correct any movement deficiencies or areas of weakness that might show up from the initial assessment.  Players will also be taught proper lifting techniques which is also key to injury prevention.  

The programme will be carried out by Niall Corcoran, Club Hurling Coach, and John Mulroy.  John is a current League of Ireland player with Bray Wanderers and has just finished a Sports Science Degree with DCU. 


The programme will commence on Tuesday 25th June.  To be included on the programme please submit your name to Niall Corcoran (email or alternatively contact your age group co-ordinator.  The cost of the programme is €20.  If you have any questions or queries about the programme please do not hesitate to contact Niall.
