Coaching course focuses on key skills

The Munster coaches with some of the local club members

KILLARNEY Rugby Club has hosted a two-day Munster youth coaching course in Barraduff with nine local coaches put through their paces along with 20 colleagues from other parts of Kerry, Cork and Limerick.
The course combined modules on child development, session structure and planning with fun on-field drills and games. Practice sessions included warm-ups, tackling, scrummaging and line-outs.

“The course was really well run and was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance,” said PRO Liam Murphy.
The club has thanked Munster Rugby and, in particular, Aidan Cleary, Euan Gee, Fiach O’Loughlin, Ray Gadsden and Denis Corridan for helping organise and run the event.

Meanwhile, this weekend fundraiser will see the launch of the club’s new Split the Bucket fundraiser which will see buckets placed in various bars, shops and other business premises. Those that contribute €2, place it in an envelope with their name and the name of the person working at the premises will be entered into a draw every Sunday night for which all envelopes are put together. The winning seller will receive 10 per cent of the total and the remainder will be split 50/50 between winner and the club.
