Naomh Olaf Academy News   13/02/2017

The Naomh Olaf GAA Club offers the opportunity to boys and girls from a very young age (5 years old and upwards) to come and have fun in the Sports Hall at the GAA club as part of the Naomh Olaf Academy.  They are introduced to the basic skills of football, hurling and camogie in a non-competitive, encouraging atmosphere.  The skills to which they are exposed improve hand eye co-ordination, give them the basic abilities for future involvement in sport and improve their social skills as they meet and interact with other young children.  The Academy is generally run by parents of the children involved, with the backing of the Naomh Olaf GAA Club, and in this way it also provides an environment where the parents can get to meet one another.  The Boys Academy takes place on a Saturday morning with the Girls Academy on a Sunday morning
Naomh Olaf GAA Club employs a Games Promotion Officer, Darren Egan, who does sterling work with the local primary schools in developing Gaelic Games.  Information on the Academy is available from Darren or through the schools.
Parents who may be interested in having their girls involved may contact John Weedle (087 285 0695, who co-ordinates details for girls born in 2010, 2011 or 2012.  Otherwise simply turn up at Naomh Olaf GAA Club on a Sunday morning at 10:45.
In the case of boys born in 2010 contact Jenny Maher (086) 220 1253, or turn up at Naomh Olaf at 10:00 on Saturday morning.  2011 and 2012 boys train at 11:00 on Saturday morning - contact Ronan Hayes (087) 298 8780,
