How do I use this page?

These overviews, exercises and games are simply ideas for you, as coach, to use in your Hurling Skills Sessions for Pod 1 Children.

Of course, should you feel you need to reach into an age group above or below, due to the progress of your group, please feel free to do so. All drills are aligned with the Newport Coaching and Games Development Plan, so feel free to pick and choose ones which work for you.
