Juvenile Academy

U5

A nice turnout for our U5s training. Lots of movement and running, and handling the ball. Well done to our players of the week Ana and Tadhg. Also a special mention to Tadhg who celebrated his birthday this weekend.

U7

A great morning this morning at St Pat’s u7 training with 24 boys togged out. We started with a warm up followed by some fun games. We practised our hand passing and kicking and finished up with 2 games of 6 V 6 which had plenty of skill and scores. Well done to Nasser our Player of the week.

U8 Girls

We had a fantastic turnout of 16 girls at training this morning.
It was a fun enthusiastic session for all with the core skills all covered within movement games. The girls were delighted to finish a great session with a game of rollerball which we changed up this week with the coaches and parents knocking out the girls.
With such high enthusiasm it was hard to pick player of the week. This week it went to Abbey Hobbert for her determination, team spirit and excellent practice of skills. Great work girls, keep practicing those skills to impress your coaches & enjoy the fun next week! Go St Pats

U9

Great turnout we worked on our hand passing soloing and our goal scoring the future is bright and full of goals with this great bunch. Sebastian & Alan excelled considering it was their 1st day, Luke & Fionn showed great commitment & tenacity especially in the art of tackling and Luke also pulled off a breath taking save. Finally Noah was the winner of the kicking competition and was very proud of himself

U10 Girls

U10 Girls trained Sunday morning March 13th at Kerry Sports Academy. The girls, ten in total, played lots of fun and fast games and were coached by Labhraidh, Noel and Monica. Throughout the training the girls worked on their hand passing, bouncing and soloing and finished up with a 5 a side match. Rosa Barrett-Gordillo worked especially hard during the practice and the match displaying her skills and deservedly won player of the week. All the girls today put in a superb effort at training. Well done to Rosa and to all the girls! Remember to keep practicing at home and see you

U11 Boys

Considering the heavy rain that fell over the weekend, we had a great turnout for u11 football last Sunday at the MTU Astro. After an active warm-up, coach John led the session with stations working on kick passing, possession, tackling and fundamental movement. We then finished with a game with some great scores from both teams. New player Jake Cahalane continues to improve every week along with Paddy Flynn, Thomas Higgins and Dylan Murphy. Fair play also to twins Tommy & Hugh Costello and Jace & Rylan Flynn who trained very well, after all 4 played for the U13’s the day before. Training continues next Sunday with the time and venue to be confirmed on the WhatsApp group closer to the weekend. In the meantime, we hope all our U11 players will participate with the rest of the club’s juvenile players next Thursday in the St Patricks Day parade. Details about the start time and meeting point also to be circulated through the WhatsApp group in the coming days.

U12/U14 Girls

Our 12’s and u 14’s trained last Friday evening in St. Pats Astroturf and the girls put in a great training session. We focused on hand passing, kick passing and did a lot of running. We finished up with a game to prepare them for their first match which was scheduled for Sunday morning in St. Pats. Unfortunately due to large amount of rain the pitch was unplayable so the game had to be cancelled.

U13

Our U13s turned out against Churchill on Saturday, the only sure thing in a yellow weather warning was we were going to get wet through. The game started with St Pats facing into the wind and rain, which put them up against it from the start. Churchill were winning the ball in midfield and scored a few quick points before St Pats got going, gaining ground but the quick ball helped by the driving wind and rain proved too strong and we went down a few goals and points before the referee called time on the first half.

After half time St Pats were reduced to 11 players, but there was a lift in our play with the wind on our tails, we managed to pull back two quick goals and a point. Churchill answered back with a goal and a few points before St Pats came back with another goal and point. With the rain constantly driving, the referee called time early and St Pats finished down a few goals and points. This was a competitive match spoiled by the atrocious weather conditions and well done to the boys for braving the wet conditions.
