COVID Update & Return to Play

2 key events this week.

  1. Our non-adult teams returned to non-contact training. This has been an exciting and eagerly anticipated time for our younger members.
  2. The government announced plans for May & June which included news that adult non-contact training would be able to start on 10th May in pods of 15 and that matches could commence on 7th June. See below letter received from C roike Park re the change.

Midleton GAA ‘One Club’ have put together a comprehensive guide to the Safe Return to Play for all teams. All parents, players and coaches are asked to familiarise themselves with these guidelines including, but not limited to, the Health Questionnaire requirements and access maps to the 4 facilities being used by Midelton GAA ‘One Club’.

Membership income is a key source of revenue for our Club in any year, but in 2021 it is more important than ever.

As you are aware, we have ambitious and hugely exciting plans for Park South and to keep these on track our membership income is more important than ever. To play, act as a Team Mentor or Club Officer you need to be a paid-up member, and, if you are a Full Member and have paid your membership before 31st May you may vote at the Club AGM.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions there are no current plans to have Membership Day in the Club as in previous years, therefore the summary below outlines how Midleton GAA One Club will facilitate membership 2021.

Camogie

On Tuesday 27th April we welcomed back some of our Juvenile Groups from U9 right up to Minor Camogie. Even though there were a few showers it didn’t dampen any of the girls spirits as laughter and chatter could be heard throughout the various pitches as both players ,parents and coaches alike were all too happy for our return to play. And that was proven from nearly full attendance across all groups. Friday 30th April saw the return of our U7 and 8 group again we had a few showers but all the girls got stuck in and lots of fun was had. We would like to thank Ballinacurra, St Colman’s School and indeed the main club for facilitating our girls In order for them to train safely.
