JUNIOR COACHING 2018
Time to get the golf gear sorted as the Junior Coaching begins Sunday 6th and runs for the 4 consecutive Sundays in May. The total cost of this year’s coaching is £36 which will be collected on Sunday 6th May when your child arrives for his/her first coaching session. The coaching is at the practice area which can be very cold at this time of year so please make sure your child has plenty of warm clothing, a hat and a waterproof jacket. I have attached the rota for the coaching and have tried to accommodate the many requests I got for specific times due to clashes with hurling and camogie. We try to be as flexible as possible so the young golfers can fit in their other sporting activities as well. As you will see the 10am and 1pm slots are pretty full. I am still waiting to hear from 4 of the children who won the primary school bursaries so they will go into groups 2+3.
As the junior golfing season progresses you will find many notices relating to the youth section of the club on our website. The coaching rota will be there as will the junior fixture card, the weekly competition draws, fun golf information, etc. Check the website regularly.
I know most of your children have their own clubs but if anyone needs to borrow a club we have a few available. We will also be supplying the golf balls for the coaching. The coach this year is Chris Gallaher from the Johnny Foster Academy of Golf in Ballyclare. He will have an assistant with him and there will always be another adult present with each group….if you as a parent can stay for one hour on 13th, 20th or 27th of May please let me know…we have two parents in action this Sunday! The Junior Co-ordinators will also be there this week. The girls’ co-ordinator is Maire Conaty and the boys’ is Austin McCarthy. Our girls’ captain Eimear Mullan and a very experienced youth team member Kate McAlister will also be there. If you need any help or want any advice speak to any of them.
I look forward to seeing a full turnout on Sunday and I know the children will enjoy the coaching. Thank you for signing them up for it. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
