Come And Join The Fun in 2015
Newtown GAA Club run the club nursery for children aged between 4 to 8 years of age every Saturday morning from 10.00 to 11:00 on the club pitch. The 2015 season kicks off on Saturday 21st March next. The Newtown nursery has grown over the last few years and each new year we welcome new face whom we hope will become like life-long members.

In the nursery the children are in a friendly, safe, and fun environment where they are showered with the skills of Gaelic Football, Hurling, & Camogie. Every Saturday morning there are different skills and exercises for the children to enjoy.

To encourage boys and girls to participate in playing football and hurling in a structured and fun environment by:

  • Introducing the child to the skills of hurling and football
  • Preparing the child to participate at competitive or recreational level as a player
  • Producing players who have a basic command of all fundamental playing skills.
  • Developing the balance, co-ordination and footwork of the players

Ethos of the Nursery

The ethos of the Nursery is "skills with fun". In order to ensure that this ethos becomes a reality the following guidelines are applied to the hurling and football sessions:

We request that parents remain in the grounds for the duration of the training session

Parents are always more than welcome to help out at the various exercises and are made feel apart of everything, as Newtown GAA prides itself on being a friendly club and club is family. There is always a need for additional mentors & help, if anybody would like to volunteer, please make yourself known to Paul or Ciaran on the Saturday morning, there is always a job to be done regardless of the qualification.
