Juvenile Academy

U6: We had fun in the sun this evening for Easter training and egg hunt. What a busy St Pats ground this evening! It was great for those who arrived early to see the intensity of match play! We had a short up beat training session with all the kids enjoying a good workout & coaches too!! We had a joint team player of the week this session! Organised mayhem followed with a team chick hunt around the grounds of the club. Teams did very well to find most of the 66 hidden chicks!! All were delighted with their Easter egg to reward them for all their hard work at training!

U8: Our U8’s had a great training session followed by an Easter egg hunt on Good Friday. It was delightful to see all the happy faces as they went in search of the eggs.
