DART Cayman Islands Kids Gaelic Football Club hosts ‘St. Patrick’s Blitz’ at Camana Bay

David O'ConnellComment

On the Saturday 18th March 2017, the DART Cayman Islands Kids Gaelic Football Club hosted a free training and games session at the Camana Bay CIS Football Pitch and ARC. This event attracted 53 children aged 5 to 16 from schools all over the Island including St Ignatius, Cayman Prep, Cayman International School, Montessori by the Sea, Bodden Town Primary School, Prospect Primary and Clifton Hunter High School. The coaching used both the football pitch and the indoor facilities at the ARC, with indoor agility and movement equipment introduced for the younger age group (5-6 year olds), and skills sessions in the sunshine (and some rain!) for ages 7 and over.

The training started with a warm up, then movement and agility drills to get the sessions going. The children were divided into age groups of 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11 plus, and started work on their team skills. This was followed by small short games to enhance the tactics learned. The teaching then finished with a mini blitz competition within these age groups.

A great morning was had by all, with many parents and children alike looking to learn more and play the games again. To this end the inaugural DART Kids Gaelic Football Easter COOL Camp will take place on mornings of the 18th – 21st April 2017.This is an action-packed and fun-filled kids camp which revolves around maximising enjoyment whilst learning and developing Gaelic Football skills. Other sports will be included to advance movement and agility skills. All standards of sports are welcome to join – especially beginners!

The Camp will include teaching by Mr. Colm Egan, full-time games development officer from the North American Gaelic Athletic Association, who delivered the Certified Foundation Level Coaching course to our own Kids Club Coaches in October, 2016. Activities will be player-centered using a games based approach, with a strong emphasis being placed on personal development and well-being.
