value of warm-up webinar

Tomorrow (April 1) evening we will be launching our weekly webinar series for Rebel Óg Coaching.
This week we will be speaking to Cork GAA GDA James McCarthy, who has vast experience as a football coach. Having coached Castlehaven to county senior championship and a coach for the Cork minor footballers the past three years, James has a wealth of knowledge on the game.
James will be speaking about maximising the value of the warm-up and getting the most from it.
The webinar will be suitable for hurling coaches also as the content is more about applying framework than specific skills.
To join us this Wednesday, see the code and password below.
Rebel Óg Coaching is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

coaching development sessions

To help coaches through this difficult period, the GAA, An Cumann Camogaíochta and the LGFA have created a series of coach development sessions to take place over the coming weeks. The sessions will run every Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm.

The sessions will be along two separate formats. Every Tuesday there will be a live Questions and Answers session with a coach. Any participants in the Q and A will have an opportunity to view the coach delivering a session from the GAA Games Development Conference over the last couple of years and submit their questions via twitter for the coach to answer live.

Every Thursday there will be a live webinar presented by a coach or coach developer. The webinar will be a 30-minute presentation followed by a live Q and A with the presenter.

The national GAA Coaching & Games Department host the first Coach Q and A session on tomorrow, Tuesday, March 31 at 7.30pm. For the Q and A sessions, we are asking coaches to review some materials in advance.

Topic: Q and A Session with Paudie Butler

Paudie delivered a presentation at the 2017 GAA Games Development Conference entitled ‘Values Omptimise Potential’ which provided an insight into his latest thinking on coaching and being a coach. All participants are encouraged to review this presentation and to submit their questions to Paudie using the form above.

féile and other competitions cancelled

A chairde,

As part of our collective efforts in dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak, it is our intention to communicate with our units on a regular basis and keep you informed of developments as they happen.

The GAA can today confirm that a number of coaching and games initiatives will not proceed in light of the prevailing circumstances.

These include the 2020 Féile competitions, the Celtic Challenge and activity involving Academy Squads.

It has also been confirmed that the Connacht Senior Football Championship meeting between New York and Galway, scheduled to take place in Gaelic Park, New York on May 3rd, has been postponed

The future for this fixture will be considered at a later date and in the context of the anticipated overall re-drawing of the national fixtures calendar for 2020 as necessitated by the ongoing disruption to the GAA games programme.

We will add to this list as further cancellations arise.

The Association would like to reassure our members that when games activity re-commences we will provide an adequate games schedule for our players at all ages and grades.

In the meantime, we are working on a unified approach for all of our units on the issue of Games Development and Administration personnel and will be liaising with our Provincial Councils and County Committees in the coming days.

Thank you for your combined efforts to date.

These efforts have the potential to make a massive difference and it is in this vein that we ask you to continue to mobilise the GAA network and our wider membership in the interests of public health and the greater good.

Please continue to exercise caution relating to social distancing and coughing and sneezing etiquette and continue to refer to HSE.ie for more detailed advice.

Tom Ryan

Director General

county board postpone club championship games

The Executive of Cork County Board met via video-conference on March 17th and, primarily with regard to the safety of our members and of the wider community, has decided to postpone the all first round games in the Premier Senior, Senior A, Premier Intermediate, Intermediate A and Lower Intermediate Championships in both football and hurling, as well as the County stages of the U21 football competitions and the County Junior B & C competitions.

These first round club championship games had been scheduled across the four weekends in April and the first two weekends in May, but are now postponed en bloc.

All other games and activities, including those under the jurisdiction of Rebel Óg, remain suspended as per GAA directive and advice from the HSE / Department of Health. This will continue until we are directed otherwise.

The scheduling and format of the County Championships for 2020 is now subject to review, in consultation with Munster Council, the National Competitions Control Committee and our Clubs.

Club league regulations and completion dates will also be reviewed once a resumption of activities is confirmed.

The offices at Páirc Uí Chaoimh will be closed until such time as current restrictions are lifted. County Board staff will work remotely and are contactable by email or via the office phone as normal . The office phone (0214963311) has been diverted to a staff member’s phone and will be answered during office hours.

We can also confirm that Páirc Uí Chaoimh is now available to the HSE, who are considering possible uses for the stadium and we hereby wish to acknowledge the efforts that our club units have already undertaken in assisting local health services and in assisting vulnerable people in our communities at this difficult time.

The County Board meeting scheduled for April 7th has been cancelled. The Executive and CCC will continue to meet regularly via video-conference and will provide a report to clubs by email after all meetings.

Once again, we urge all our members to adhere to directives from the GAA, the HSE and the Department of Health during the current pandemic.

This is to include all games, training and team gatherings at all ages and all grades. We will continue to liaise with Government officials and review the situation between now and the end of the month, assessing the impact of these measures on our competitions. 

In the meantime, the Association is encouraging all members to continue to follow the guidelines which have been provided by the health authorities.

A chara
In the current climate, we are asking clubs to follow some simple steps in and around club activities, games, and training.
Players should have their own water bottles rather than sharing.
No handshakes at the end of games.
Players use their own towels, soap, hand cleaner, etc when washing and drying after games, etc.

An email is also being sent to all club secretary accounts with these instructions.
