Shankill GAA Nursery

The Nursery

Fun based excercise for 4 to 6 year old children.

The Shankill GAA Nursery

The Shankill GAA Nursery focuses on a series of fun based exercises where children between 4 to 6 years old develop movement and motor skills in a safe environment with their friends. The emphasis is on fun, involvement and then skills. We pride ourselves on catering for children of all abilities. Our coaches are parents of young children so they understand that kids learn best by trial and error. Consequently the focus is on creating a positive environment through praise and encouragement.

Motor Skills

Typical session: Each session typically consists of 4 or 5 training stations which are designed to develop the children’s;
Movements skills (agility, balance, coordination, running and jumping skills)
Motor skills (throwing, catching and passing, kicking and striking skills on the player’s ability to play with and manipulate a ball) These skills are the basis for later development of the specific skill of Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football.

When and Where?

The Nursery is held on Saturday mornings between 10am – 11am during term time. During the spring/summer period we are on our adult home pitch at Stonebridge Road and in the winter period we move indoors to St. Laurence’s College, Loughlinstown remain there until weather conditions improve.
