ABC nursery

Roscommon coaching and games development in conjunction with the coach education tutor work group will start a new ABC club nursery programme for five to seven year old boys and girls. This new and exciting initiative will cover nine different circuits of agility, balance, co-ordination, running, jumping, kicking, throwing, catching and striking. We will be inviting clubs in each region to a central indoor centre to demonstrate the nursery programme. After that clubs can go back and start their own indoor circuits for their young players over the next few months. The programme covers all codes football, hurling and camógie.
