Éire Óg Adult Players
Our goal has been to create a fully operational Strength & Conditioning facility within Éire Óg with excellent facilities operated by a highly experienced full-time Strength and Conditioning Coach. This unique opportunity allows for the comprehensive development of players’ S&C needs thereby giving the club the greatest possible competitive advantage in club championships. It is only when players and teams experience proper S&C coaching that they fully comprehend the full benefits of developing this critical aspect of the modern game. We look forward to building towards the future with our adult players in the club.
Team training is scheduled in conjunction with adult coaches and managers.
Éire Óg Development Players (16-18 yrs old);
Besides being engaged to oversee our adult Ladies and Men’s Football, Hurling & Camogie teams’S&C needs, Éire Óg S&C is here to guide our development players (16-18 yrs old) in best practices for the development of their athletic capabilities and thereby aid in making Éire Óg a more competitive force.It is critical that young athletes are given the proper oversight and education in relation to S&C training.Development players will have the opportunity to be coached through a progression to the highest level from the beginning of their time resistance training. Rather than leaving young boys and girls to their own devices where programming, technique and loading parameters are inevitably poorly met – there is oversight and coaching throughout so that when they enter senior ranks they are already highly proficient in these aspects of training.
