Fingal Easter training camps resounding success
Fingal Cricket Easter Camps 2012
Over 200 school children attended a number of Easter coaching camps held within Fingal cricket clubs and sports centres.
The Easter camps were run over 4/5 days at different venues within Fingal, namely - The Hills CC, Rush CC, Malahide CC and Corduff Sports Centre.
The growth of cricket in Fingal was clear to see during the running of these camps with over 50 of these children experiencing club cricket for the first time.
All the camps experienced record numbers attending and this is mainly due to the great work that local clubs, Fingal County Council & The Leinster Cricket Union are doing through the 'school coaching visit programme' that has been running for some years now.
A new coaching programme has now started after Easter within Fingal Primary schools and will continue through till June.
Schools will also partake in Leprechaun Cup matches and several cricket blitz’s being held at Malahide/Swords, Rush and Blanchardstown.
As a result of these activities there will be more children participating in the game and the success of the Fingal programme will continue to rise.
