Kilkenny GAA


U-9 Go Games Festival Day  2018




Saturday – 7th July


Each Club will have the opportunity to have TWO Teams Playing on two pitches side by side in Kilkenny GAA’s Training Centre MW HIRE Training Centre Dunmore. Teams are to be of mixed ability – Not an “A” and a “B” Team.  {Remember the Players are U-9 NOT Adult Players}.

We planned this to be a CLUB JERSEY GAME but just in case of low numbers  due to holdiays, EVERY CLUB is  also asked to bring their “BLACK AND AMBER” Bibs as well. This way we can guarantee all players games. THANK YOU. Clubs please bring “Club jersies” and “Black and Amber” bibs.

Each club will have One Hurling Game – 15 minutes a half. AND a 10 minute game of Gaelic Football after that. Teams will be 7/ 9/10/11/12 a –side (as designated by club numbers)

If a club has subs, subs are to be rotated, so that a player is only taken off once during the game. It is vital clubs are in place ready to start on appointed time to ensure smooth running of the afternoons activity.

First Half – Rise and Strike  (No Catching) – Second Half – Full Hurling.

Player who is fouled takes the free.

Nearest player to the sideline, takes the sideline.

Bad language is discouraged on the pitch and on the sidelines.

Each player will be presented with a momento of the occasion.

Transition year students will referee the games.

We would ask mentors to shake hands with opposing mentors before and after the game.

Players to shake hands before and after the game.

Remember for some players it will be their first time playing in MW Hire TC Dunmore in their club jersey.

We all should try to make it a memorable occasion for players/coaches and parents.

On EXITING MW HIRE TRAINING CENTRE DUNMORE, we would ask you all to turn right, head to the roundabout.

ALL DRIVERS take extra care on approach/leaving MW Hire Training Centre Dunmore, as young players/ supporters will be in and around the car parking areas.
