Down U13 Academy 
The U13 Academy continued on Saturday at Clonduff GAC Grounds. It was great to see 16 new faces this week, swelling the numbers attending this Academy to 64 girls from 20 clubs, which is tremendous. A big thank you to all the girls for their dedication and commitment, including those girls who had competitive camogie club championship games earlier in the day. The big numbers is serving up a very competitive and fun atmosphere at the Academy which is to the benefit of all those attending. It is great to witness the high level of skill on display from all those girls and the support from the clubs is much appreciated by the mentors JR, Kieran, Siobhan and Brian. Thanks also to Clonduff GAC for the use of their facilities. See Facebook for photos!
