The Junior Warriors get underway next week, with the three areas starting on the 9th of May in Bready (Southern), Foyle College (Central) and Limavady Grammar (Northern).
“These venues have been chosen as we want to provide an opportunity for small groups of players to have coaching and be coached in an environment that pushes them and they are not the big fish. By using these venues, we have options if the weather is poor to go indoors or use the artificial turf, meaning they should all go ahead”.
The Dates are
Under 11s May 16th & 30th, June 13th & 27th & July 4th*
Under 13s May 9th & 23rd, June 6th & 20th & July 4th*
*All day session in conjunction with NW Warriors Vs Northern Knights IPC Match.
The summer program will climax with a week-long games week, with coaching in the mornings and games against the other areas, along with potentially other provinces, in the afternoons.
