Macroom GAA Update 5th Feb. 2018   05/02/2018

Macroom G.A.A. Club Update, 5th Feb. 2018.

 Rebel Óg Gold Standard for Juvenile Club.

 The juvenile club is delighted to have been awarded the Gold Standard in Rebel Óg Benchmarking for the period 2017-2020 (having been silver in 2016). The judgment is made on a number of parameters; the number of games played, the number of training sessions held, and proper administration with regard to secretarial, treasury and vetting work. Consideration is also given to the upkeep of grounds and dressing rooms, organization of matches and provision of referees, and running our affairs well with a friendly and healthy relationship with other clubs. Note is also made of the occurrence of special training modules such as ‘speed camp’ and goalkeeping coaching. The effort was led by Diarmuid Holland and other club officers, and all involved should be complimented and well pleased with the award. Effectively the recognition is saying that we have good club structures and the basis for on-going development and progress. Well done to Diarmuid and all who contributed.
