Camogie

Another great week which saw huge numbers training across the week.  The schedule is getting very busy for the coming weeks much to the delight of all of us involved.  Before the season takes off finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has worked hard to get us back to action, committee members, coaches, parents and the girls themselves.  We would most especially like to thank all those behind the scenes, all those who contribute to facilities, cutting the grass, painting the gates, organising the signage, organising the supply of sansitiser and timetabling the very many players across the club.  We would also like to thank the ‘one club’ for continued cooperation in scheduling training and games and especially those who have rearranged their own timetable to facilitate camogie.  It is very much appreciated.

Huge thank you to Mark O Sullivan aka Fanta for giving up his time and putting the U11’s through an excellent training session in Ballinacurra during the week. The girls really enjoyed it! Mark has made himself available as coaching officer for our club this year and will row in with coaches from U6 right up to our Minor and Junior groups as requested by coaches who want a different training session to the norm and maybe even learn a few new skills along the way.

A historic occasion for Midleton Camogie Club as we fielded our first ever Junior Team on Thursday 9th July Midleton travelled to Cobh GAA and put on a fantastic display of Camogie skills which saw both teams battling it out to the very end! Well done to you all girls and your coaches! Onwards and upwards ladies. We look forward to your next match. Thanks to Cobh Camogie for a great game!

Just a gentle reminder to please re confirm your daughter’s health on returntoplaygaa.ie before each training session and log it under whichever team your daughter is training with on the day. Please note this should be done at least one hour before training, thanks in advance for all your cooperation.

As always keep an eye on our social media channels for upcoming matches and training details and more camogie news.

Great Crane Drop

Thanks to all who very generously supported the GREAT CRANE DROP fundraiser earlier this year. Unfortunately due to the COVID crisis we were unable to hold the St. Patrick’s Day festival with the crane drop & other activities. Therefore all tickets sold for the GREAT CRANE DROP will instead be put in a draw to choose the winners. The same great prizes still apply. If you have any tickets (sold or unsold) please return them to your team manager BEFORE Sunday 19th July. The draw will take place on Friday 24th July.

Safeguarding & Vetting

As you will know from the notes in recent weeks coaches and all those of us involved with teams where players are under 18 years of age were reminded to update all mandatory requirements as per the national vetting Bureau Act 2012-2016 and the Children First Legislation 2015. 

Phenomenal effort has been made and I would like to thank all those who responded promptly, your cooperation is much appreciated. Further correspondence was sent this week to those outstanding. Once complete please forward evidence to Ingrid by the 21st July on 087 6374748 or childrensofficermidletongaa@gmail.com.  I can also be contacted on this number if anyone had any questions or needs assistance.  Many thanks to all.

Fortunately, many people were in a position to renew safeguarding and vetting online however a small number of new coaches will need to do a face to face Safeguarding workshop.  For those coaches please save the date of Thursday 30th of July at 7pm for this workshop in the club.  There are very strict guidelines associated with facilitating such a workshop under the current conditions.  Ingrid will be in touch with all those who require this arrangement in the coming days.  Only those booked in will be able to participate on the night.  There will not be another opportunity to attend one of these workshops until the Autumn.
