Launch of the U9/U11 GO Games

The 2019 Leitrim GAA Go Games got off to a fun filled start when U9 and U11 teams from throughout the county converged on the Leitrim GAA Centre of Excellence on April 13 & 20, to play a series of games that focused on skill development and enjoyment rather than just winning at all costs.

A massive well done to the players who showcased their skills with some breathtaking shooting on display that would not have been out of place in Croke Park.

The Coaching and Games team implemented a Silent Sideline on both days. This resulted in the players being able to make their own decisions and communicate with their team mates without other voices instructing them from the sideline.

A massive thank you to the team mentors and parents for abiding to the silent sideline and we look forward to seeing the silent sideline being rolled out in the clubs.

Croke Park Go Games launch

During the Easter Holidays, five lucky U-12 teams from Leitrim were invited to play a series of games against teams from Connacht on the hollowed turf of Croke Park, as part of the Connacht GAA Go Games Launch Day.

Players from Annaduff, Gortletteragh, Drumkeerin, Kiltubrid and Dromahair were treated to the full Croke Park experience. Well done to the players who played their hearts out and hopefully many of the players will get to play in Croke Park again, wearing either their club jersey or the Green and Gold of Leitrim. Thank you to the mentors and parents for their assistance on the day and in the run up to the occasion.
