Summer Coaching Week: It has long been insisted that players represent the most important constituent in any GAA club. They are our key resource and give so much enjoyment to so many people year after year. As a result, our club coaches have a most important job to perform in ensuring that the youth continue to play and enjoy our games, and that all of our players continue to develop as athletes. With this in mind, early this summer Bruree Juvenile Club is holding a Summer Coaching Week for both Hurling and Football between Monday June 28th and Friday July 2nd. The camp will be from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm on the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Participants should bring their hurley and helmet every day. Please note that helmets are compulsory. This week of coaching is open to all children in the parish from 7 to 14 years of age. All basic skills in Hurling and Football will be demonstrated /coached so any "new" players will be especially welcome. At the end of the week, on the Friday evening from 6.30 to 8.30 pm, there will be some games and activities for all and presentation of sports gear. The total cost for this great week is €30 and is due by Saturday June 5th at the latest. Please enclose the fee in an envelope and bring to trainings and give to the relevant coaches (please do not return through the school). There will be a registration day in the field on Saturday June 5th between 11 am and 12 noon to accept forms and for parents who may have any queries. It is important that all young people in the parish have the chance to receive the proper coaching and Bruree Juvenile Club hope that participation in this Coaching Week will enable them to have fun, make friends and become better players! So please make the effort and make this a special week for all!

On Saturday the 15th the Bruree Ladies footballers travelled to Adare to play the local side. On this their fourth match since reforming the club, Bruree looked more confident, the recent training evident in their game. Adare, playing with the wind in the first half, threw everything at Bruree but Bruree held most of the possession and lead 2-2 to 0-2 at half time. Again in the second half Bruree dominated the first ten minutes but things looked shaky from then on, Adare scoring some fine points from play, Bruree however held tough and won out 5-6 to 2-2.
