U7 Boys and Girls
The under 7s were in action again on Saturday at MTU Sports Academy.  These young players enthusiastically took on all of the training stations on offer and enjoyed a few competitive games of hurling to finish off the training session. With attendance holding at the mid 30’s upwards most weeks the under 7’s are going from strength to strength.  It is great to see so many young players beginning their hurling journey with Tralee Parnells.  Congratulations to last week’s player of the week Óisín Bourke and this week’s player of the week Aoife O’Gorman, well done to you both.
Ball Wall
It was a stunning Saturday morning at the Ball Wall at Gaelscoil Mhic Easmainn when Tralee Parnells coaches turned out in force to learn the nuances of Wall Ball training from South Kerry GDA, Colm O’Brien.  Our enthusiastic U11 hurlers were put through their paces by Colm who advised coaches on running effective ball wall training sessions.  In 2021, Tralee Parnells had jumped at the chance to partner with Gaelscoil Mhic Easmainn on a Sports Capital Programme grant application. This facilitated the school in building a state of the art AstroTurf pitch with a ball wall attached for hurling and camogie.  Thank you in particular to retired principal, Cáit Uí Chonchúir, and current principal, Liam Ó Conchubhair, for driving the development.  Thank you to Colm and our U11 hurlers for running an informative coach-the-coaches session at the weekend!  All teams at the club are looking forward to benefiting from Tralee’s first ball wall.
U12 and U14 Camogie
Training for U12 girls continues on Monday evenings at 7pm at CBS the Green astro while the U14s train at 6 pm.  These sessions are perfect for any girls looking to try camogie out for the first time.  Girls in Tralee town, Ballymacelligott, Blennerville, Spa, Churchill and Fenit are welcome to attend. Hurley and helmet will be provided for new players.  Text 085 1355566 for more information.
