Yesterday, 37 youth players from all over the country met in Westmanstown, Dublin for the first ever under 20s Ireland Training Camp.
This first session was designed to give these players an introduction to the Ireland programme, so the coaches kicked things off with classroom sessions to give an overview of the day and explain the playbooks and strategies for the programme.
The afternoon was used for on field activities with players being taken through positional drills and exercises followed by an offense vs defence session to put what they learnt into practice.
They were put through their paces by an experienced coaching staff comprising of coaches from many clubs around the country.
Today’s session also leads into the opening event of the Youth Football League on September 13th – more details to follow.
