Boys Football and Hurling Nursery
The Boys Football and Hurling Nursery takes place each Saturday afternoon from 1.30pm to 3pm for boys born in 2006, 2007 and 2008 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 Nursery is our Games Promotion Officer (GPO), Dublin Senior Hurling Captain Johnny McCaffrey, pictured right lifting the NHL Division 1 cup in May 2011, the day Dublin absolutely hammered Kilkenny in the league final.
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 "2006" and "2007/8" .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.
