Well done to all clubs for participating and a massive thank you to the clubs that hosted the blitzes on a regular basis. Without the support of the clubs, the blitzes would not have been such a massive success.

Any feedback from parents, mentors or club officials on how we can improve the blitzes for next year is welcome.

Post Primary School Activity
With most post primary schools well into their respective campaigns in Hurling and Football, we are also continuing to assist some schools off the pitch. TY coach education programmes are ongoing or have been completed in 4 post primary schools.
First year blitzes have been completed in 9 schools in Gaelic Football. More details on these can be found on the Cork Coaching and Games Twitter account.

Regional Squads
Over the Hallowe'en break we had 8 teams representing the city take part in the regional games in St. Vincent's.
In Hurling we paired off against the West in U13 A&B, U14 and U15. We had 4 very competitive matches, with 3 of hte games being decided by less than a goal. These squads will continue to train into the next few weeks with their respective mentors.
In Football, we were paired off against the Mid West and again, some very competitive football was on display with some keenly contested matches. Again, these teams will continue to train in the next coming weeks now that club activity has finished up.
