Carbery Beara U16 football 

The inter-divisional U14 football tournament scheduled for Saturday, November 26th has been moved to Saturday, December 3rddue to the high levels of club activity currently ongoing. With Carbery having won the U15 tournament in Clonakilty in 2010, they will now be joined by their Beara counterparts to field two teams. Therefore a combined panel of over 40 players is being formed and an open invitation to all players is being extended. A number of players will attend the U17 games referred to above and the remainder will assemble in the near future. Further details to follow.


Carbery Beara U15 & U14 football 

Due to the involvement of a number of clubs in county championships the inter-divisional U14 and U15 football tournaments have been postponed until late January. Collective training fro these panels will resume in the early 2012.


Carbery Beara U13 Emerging Players 

Last week saw U13 hurlers and footballers from all around West Cork assemble for hurling and football sessions in Bandon, Skibbereen and Adrigole. These players will next assemble during the first week of January 2012 and continue as the U14 panel for the year. Thanks to Noel Crowley and James McCarthy for their help with the coaching and to parents for ferrying their sons to the various venues.


Cork Development Squads Physical Development Programme 

A six-week physical development programme commenced throughout the county on last night, Monday, November 7th for hurlers and footballers on Cork development squads at U14, U15 and U16 level. At various venues, physical instructors, along with squads mentors and third level students, will strive to deliver 6 weeks of exercise instruction to players ensuring that technique is emphasized. The clear understanding is that ‘real’ change in physical development may not occur in the 6 sessions, but this is not the key objective. The 6 sessions are a short development phase where focus is placed on players practicing ‘best’ technique and experiencing what ‘correct’ movement feels like. As a result players will use this ‘knowledge’ in their training ongoing. Venues are spread throughout the county at Glantane, Caherlag, Glen Rovers and Ballinacarriga.

West Cork players involved in various squads will assemble at the magnificent indoor facilities at Randal Og GAA Club at different times throughout the evening under the guidance of Liam O’Reilly and Arthur Tobin. In future weeks, club coaches will be invited to attend and observe the sessions and eventually it is hoped that the programme will extend to divisional teams and ultimately the club player.


Cork Coaching Forum 'Fundamentals' Workshops 

The Cork Sports Partnership recently launched a new initiative for coaches which aims to provide coaches/volunteers and leaders of underage sporting activities in Cork access to relevant, up to date and appropriate material, training and information. The Cork Coaching Forum is delighted that Coaching Ireland who has the lead role in developing coaching in the country, have come on board as a partner with production of the modules to be delivered to the coaches.

Phase one of the programme is due to be rolled out this coming November, where coaches can attend the first module in one of four areas throughout the county. The first module entitled “An introduction to Coaching Children” will focus on the Fundamental skills and physical literacy which is key to the development of children in sport. The session will help develop coaches understanding of the importance of fundamental movement skills and the benefit of these skills to each sport. The evening will have both a theory and practical element to it along with a questions and answers/feedback session.

The dates for the first module of the Cork Coaching Forum are:
