London GAA will be hosts to an Underage Hurling Day on Saturday, April 30th in Ruislip from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. as part of the London GAA 1916 Commemorations. Damien Curley (Connacht GAA) will be over for the day to work with all of our young Gaels who are interested in Hurling. Boys and Girls from 6 - 16 are invited regardless of experience, we will cater for the beginner right up to expert.

Registration begins at 9.30 a.m. and after that the children will be divided into three groups 6-9 year olds, 10 - 12 years olds and 12+ year olds. There will be three coaching stations in the morning and the groups will spend 35-40 minutes at each station. Lunch break from 12.00 - 12.30 so all children are asked to bring a packed lunch. The Clubhouse will be open for any children/parents who wish to use the facilities. From 12.30 - 2.00, the children will be split in to teams and will play a mini-blitz to put the new skills that they have learned into practice. I would encourage as many of you as possible to get to Ruislip on the day and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
