A SAFE RETURN TO PLAY

A lot of work has been carried out since the GAA announced the re-opening of its’ playing grounds. Suitable signage, sanitising units and guidelines have been adopted to ensure the health and safety of all our members.

One of the key control measures that have been put in place as part of a Safe Return to Gaelic Games is the completion of a Health Questionnaire.

  • Adult Players, Parents/Guardians of underage players and Team Personnel will be required to complete the online Health Questionnaire ONCE prior to their return to Gaelic Games.
  • Using the same system, Adult Players, Parents/Guardians and Team Personnel will be required to declare, before each training session/game, that their health status has not changed.

The Online System for the Health Questionnaire is now live and this is the only system that should be used.

The link to the questionnaire is https://returntoplay.gaa.ie

Hurling Updates: U13, U15 and U17 training update

The GAA have announced a roadmap to recommencing training and games and this includes U13, U15 and U17 Championship. The club are working through the details at the moment and we are currently planning to go back training on the week of 29th June 2020 and will train on Monday, Thursday and Saturday evenings. We hope lots of our players have been doing some hurling and physical work over the break but if anyone needs a plan over the next 2 weeks we have attached a strength programme below based on bodyweight exercises. This includes You Tube videos of the correct technique. If any player would like to start some aerobic work, a good target would be to run 1km three times a week at a steady pace. All this work will prevent soreness/stiffness and injury when we get back to the field.

Strength Programme for U13, U15 and U17 players

We have also included here a handy booklet on Sports Nutrition for teenagers when they are training which may be useful. safefood-Teen-Sports-Booklet

We look forward to being back on the field and enjoying the 2020 season.
Please Note: All the above is subject to compliance with Covid -19 Guidelines.

U11 Report 2019

Under 11 2019 was a highly enjoyable and successful year with a great bunch of young hurlers. The older members of the panel were also on the Under 13 panel so they were very busy.
We started back in February training under lights in the Loreto and then back to the pitch in late March. Our first blitz of the year was the CBS blitz in Palmerstown where we played Tullaroan, Gowran and Dunnamaggin, winning all 3 games. Our player of the day was Oran Hoyne who received a CBS jersey.

U13 Report 2019

Our U13’s competed in Roinn B in both Football and Hurling in 2019. We returned to training last February under lights in Loreto Astro turf, then returning to Tom Ryall Park in late March. We used the Football League to give game time to all the panel while getting ready for the Championship in April. We lost to Glenmore 4-6 to 3-2 in the opening round. Most of the panel enjoyed an extended run with St. Aidan’s school team which brought them to a Quarter Final in Roinn B and a Semi Final in the Country Cup.

Our league campaign ran from mid June to end of July. We were very competitive in all our matches, winning two, drew one and lost four to finish mid table. We prepared well for championship over the next few weeks where we played a fancied Galmoy/Windgap side. Again this young team gave everything for the jersey but lady luck deserted the boys who bowed out on a scoreline of: Galmoy/Windgap 3-9, GBC 1-9.( We were short 3 players due to holidays)

With the dates of League and Championship clashing with summer holidays, management never got a chance to play their strongest 15, nonetheless it gave everyone on the panel an opportunity to stake a place on the championship team. Overall, management were very happy with how the players carried themselves throughout these matches, the panel was very young with 5 U11’s starting v Galmoy/Windgap. A number of these players were involved in U14 and U12 tournaments throughout the year as well. Thanks to the ladies who looked after first aid during the year, Claire Roberts (Juvenile Secretary) and Maurice Ronan for their help during the year.
PANEL: Sean McGrath, Elliott Teehan, Cillian Hoyne, Ben Young, Aidan Comerford, Paidí Egan, James O’Halloran, Frank McCluskey, Tony Butler, Robbie Tector, Eoghan Cahill, Shane Cody, Robbie Lynch, Martin Brennan, Michael Tynan, Oran Hoyne, Keelan Lynch, Shane Hogan, Ben McEvoy, Aidan Ging, Cormac Neary, Sean O’Halloran, Andrew Tector.

U13B Hurling League 26/07/2019 – GBC V Piltown

GBC U13’s travelled to Piltown to play our final league game on 26th July. Again GBC got off to a poor start conceding 1-3 before we eventually got on the scoreboard after 15 minutes. Our backs began to get on top which allowed more possession for the forwards, both sides traded points for the remaining half . HT Score:  Piltown 1-7, GBC 0-5. The 2nd half was evenly balanced when Piltown’s No.14 won possession on the edge of the square and sent an unstoppable shot to the net with 7 minutes remaining. At the other end Piltown’s keeper pulled off two point blank saves to deny us a goal. Overall Piltown were a stronger/balanced team and ran out deserving winners. FT Score: Piltown 2-13, GBC 0-11.  Read more
