Boys Football and Hurling Academy
The Boys Football and Hurling Academy takes place each Saturday morning from 10am for boys born in 2009, 2010 and 2011 on our all weather pitch at the clubhouse grounds at The 12th Lock. The boys play 45 minutes football and 45 minutes hurling. Which they play first is only decided on the day so as to have as many boys as possible playing both codes.
Our head coach for the Academy is our Games Promotion Officer (GPO), Dublin Senior Hurling Captain Johnny McCaffrey (pictured right) lifting the Bob O'Keeffe Cup in Croke Park in 13 after Dublin's Leinster Final victory over Galway.
When you enter our all weather pitch you will notice a black sign with yellow numbers on it on the far left end of the pitch and on the right hand side of the pitch. The signs will read "2009" and "2010/11" .Your son should go to which ever sign corresponds to his year of birth.
We have a limited number of hurls and helmets for beginners but children are encouraged to bring there own gear once they have decided they would like to stay in the nursery.
