Rebel Óg Football Skills Competition.

September 18, 2019

Rebel Óg Coaching have just announced details of a new football skills competition for underage club players.

Aimed at u 12,13 & 14 age groups, the competition is designed to test players kicking abilities off right and left feet. The test is simple to set up and each player gets 5 kicks from his left and right leg, 10 kicks in total.

All clubs are encouraged to set up the test and run it at their club grounds on or before the 27th September. The top 3 players from an age group are then put forward to a Divisional final to be held on or before the 13th October. The county finals will take place among the 8 Divisional winners on the week ending the 20th October. Winners at Divisional level will receive a specially commissioned top to mark their success.

Co Op Superstores have come on board as sponsors of the event and we would encourage all members to support this sponsor where possible. 



Clubs should organise a date between now and the 27th September for all their u 12, 13 & 14 players to compete in the skills test.

The top 3 players in each age group should then be nominated to go forward to the Divisional finals as a team to represent the club. This can be done by completing the form on the link below.


Rebel Óg Coaching strongly recommends against clubs just picking 3 players without actually allowing all interested players to participate internally first. While it is important that clubs should put all 3 age groups forward, it is not mandatory to enter all age groups.

Players and coaches should keep a watch on the Rebel Óg Twitter account also over the next 2 weeks as Cork GAA players will be demonstrating the skills for participants.
