Kilkenny youngsters are in for a treat shortly when former hurler of the year, Michael Fennelly, will head up the Elverys youth camp in the city.
The Ballyhale Shamrocks player is heading up the Elverys GAA/GPA Youth Camps in Killenny that is being held in Dicksboro GAA grounds in Palmerstown from June 24 to 28.
This is a pilot project taking place in selected counties across the country for boys aged between 13 to 15 years of age.
The camps are led by high profile inter-county players such as Dublin’s Bernard Brogan, Donegal’s Michael Murphy and, of course, Kilkenny’s Michael Fennelly. In all, there are over 120 inter-county players involved in the various coaching teams nationwide.
Fellow Kilkenny panelists Walter Walsh (Tullogher-Rosbercon), Cillian Buckley (Dicksboro) and Willie Phelan (Dunnamaggin) will also be involved in the camp in Palmerstown.
The camps are the latest joint venture between the GAA and the players’ body and will see these youths get an insight into the life of an inter-county player in an action packed week that will include conditioned games, skills development, mental preparation, sports nutrition and athletic development.
All participants will receive a limited edition Elverys Sports pack while there will also be an exciting skills competition in each camp with the chance to win a Lenovo laptop.
