2014 Munster Super 10’s competition

This is a competition for under 15 club teams throughout the province.
Clubs can enter in either hurling or football.
 
To help guide clubs on what is involved please see the frequently asked questions below
 
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THIS COMPETITION?
The aim is to provide clubs with the opportunity to give u 15 players game time against opposition they would not be familiar with in a competitive platform.
 
HOW MANY PLAYERS CAN A CLUB USE?
The games are 10 a side and there is a limit of 12 players per panel with unlimited substitutions.
 
ARE TEAMS GRADED?
No, you enter the competition and take your chances.!
In the past, clubs would vary from Grade 1 down to Grade 2 and 3 in counties.
Clubs should ensure they have a majority of players at u15 age however. If your club would be relying on u14 players to fill the majority of your panel, then this competition may not be for you.
 
WHAT FORMAT IS USED FOR THE COMPETITION?
On May 31st clubs will take part in a blitz format competition where they will play 3 games in a group of 4.
There will be 4 or more blitz venues around the province on the day.
The team finishing top of each group will then proceed to the semi finals and finals day in Mallow on the 14th June.
 
HOW FAR WILL CLUBS HAVE TO TRAVEL?
The venues will not be confirmed until all entries are received. However, Munster Council will try to group clubs geographically so as to avoid clubs having to travel excessive distances. Indeed certain clubs who enter the competition will be asked to act as host venues on the day.
The finals will be in Mallow on the 14th June.
 
WHAT BENEFITS ARE THERE TO ENTERING THIS COMPETITION
Firstly it is something very different in that it is played 21 to 21 yard lines in to u 12 size goals and is 10 a side.
This means that players will get more touches of the ball and be far more involved in the game than your normal 15 a side game. The feedback from players over the last 3-4 years has been very positive.
 
Secondly, coaches will get the chance to compare their own players against opposition from other counties.
 
Thirdly, every player that takes part will get a specially commissioned Munster Super 10's training top.
 
 
HOW DO I ENTER?
You can express your interest in taking part by contacting your local GDA.
However, as places are limited you would need to do so immediately as it is expected that capacity will be reached in a very short period of time.

Lá Ruaile Buaile – 18th Márta 2013

A Big word of thanks to everyone who helped out in Lá Ruaile Buaile in Lackabawn yesterday.


Mouthguards & The GAA

 

We would like to remind all Parents of Juvenile Players that from 1st Jan 2013 it is mandatory to use a mouthguard in all football matches and training sessions (for all age grades up to and including minor).

 

The GAA recently announce that an agreement has been reached to distribute GAA/GPA mouthguards. The product range includes both boil and bite mouthguards and custom fittedmouthguards. The boil and bite mouthguards are now available to purchase. They come in four categories of protection: bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

They are available for purchasing through the following local retailers:

·         Supervalu

·         Centra

·         Lifestyle

·         Elverys

·         O'Neills 
Following on from their extensive research of the market, these mouth guards, supplied by OPRO, are the best product available in terms of quality, certification and value for money. Custom mouthguards will be available from mid January.

 

Further information on the use of mouthguards for parents and players can be found at; http://gaa.ie/medical-and-player-welfare/mouthguards/.
