Hurling Training






The first round of the intermediate premier championship is now only less than a month away. Unfortunately due to the bad weather conditions we have being getting our GAA field is un playable, therefore we have to travel to Tipperary Town to use the astro turf facilities they have there. Training is tough when you have to do it under lights as they can interfere with your sight when you are trying to catch, control or block the ball. We had training on Friday last. The size of the astro turf is nor very ideal for us to do tactics and some new skills we might do in a match. This meant all we did in training was some drills and running. We started off with running to the first cone and turing to give a hand pass to the next cone after a few minutes of that we then went to the second cone to give a ball to hand or along the ground. That was the warm up and then we stretched after. We then did long ball striking where one man would strike the ball along the ground or up high and you had to sprint out and collect it and strike it back. We then did a hand passing drill which can be very confusing and difficult for people to come to terms with it, the drill is called truck and trailer. We finished off the training with some fitness, we had to do a 3 minute plank and then a 5 minute run around the track. We then did our warm down and stretches and the manager had a little chat about what he wants from us.
