Age groups and entries for 2020

The executive of Coiste Sinsear an Chontae has decided not to change the age groups for Rebel Óg competitions for 2020 so the competitions next year will be run in the same age brackets as 2019. Minor will still be U18 with U16 and U14 the main age group competitions.
As usual, teams will be 13 or 15 a side depending on team numbers.
Entry forms for 2020 will be issued before the end of September with a return date for mid-October. Clubs thinking of forming independent teams (amalgamations) are requested to have this considered and decided prior to the entry forms being returned.
For clubs who do not wish to amalgamate and who do not have numbers to field a team by themselves, Coiste is prepared to consider small sided  (9 or 11 a side)competitions up to U16.
However, if a club opts for that and if there is sufficient demand for such competitions, they cannot then be part of an amalgamated team at that age group (e.g. You play either 9 a side or be part of an amalgamated team).
No decision will be taken on this until the number of expressions of interest is known.
Some clubs with numbers of  4 and under in an age grouping may wish to consider catering for players using T.O. Rial 6.8;Exceptions 2 (b).
