Bandon Underage Camogie Club - 2017-02-05

Is your daughter interested in playing camogie 

Briege Corkery started off playing hurling with the boys in Aghinagh GAA and went on to become one of the most successful dual players of all times, winning 6 All Ireland Camogie Medals and 11 All Ireland Football medal, holder of 17 All Ireland Medals in total.

Your daughter could be the next Briege Corkery - please come along to our meeting next Wednesday February 8th @ 8.30 pm



If your daughter is interested in joining our club please come along to this meeting, as we need to get an idea of numbers & age groups interested to proceed with setting up a club in Bandon. 

Here are five great reasons to get your girl involved in camogie:


1. Develop hand-eye coordination

Developing the skills required to be a good camogie player at an early age will stand to a child for life. If they can master getting a sliotar off the ground, belting it down the field, and catching balls high in the air, they'll be able to turn their hand to any other sport. Skills like hand-eye coordination will stand to them in all areas of life.

2. The sense of community

Being a member of a camogie club is about so much more than playing the game. It's almost like joining a second family. Along with making a whole new circle of friends, your little ones will enjoy great days out. Team outings with underage teams like the under 8s and under 10s are a big part of the camogie calendar, with girls getting the opportunity to go to big games in Croke Park to watch their heroes in action.

3. Be part of the fastest field game in the world

Hurling and camogie are known as the fastest field games in the world - a great coup for all players of the game. 

4. Become disciplined

Showing commitment to the game and taking on the responsibility of being part of a team are huge parts of playing camogie. Not showing up for training or missing a match means letting down an entire team - lessons that are hard-learned throughout life. Learning the importance of these values at an early age comes with huge benefits

5. Earn the respect of other athletes

Playing camogie comes with some major bragging rights. It's well-known that GAA players are made of harder stuff, and if you can master camogie, you can play anything.
