This weekend will see budding coaches and hurling aficionados from around the country descend on Croke Park for the Liberty Insurance GAA Games Development Conference. The theme this year: Inspiring Children -- Fostering a Love of Gaelic Games.

I've jokingly heard the first workshop of the morning is titled 'How to Effectively Shout at Children'. Apparently studies show the child will perform to optimum level at an even mix of fear and expression.

That's followed by the much anticipated 'Tunnel Vision: Parents Losing the Rag on Sidelines'. Child psychologist 'My Johnny' will deliver the half-hour lecture.
