TOP Dublin players are involved with the Elverys GAA/GPA Youth Camps, which will cater for boys aged 13 to 15. The Football Camp begins next Monday, June 24, running till the following Friday, while the Hurling Camp takes place between July 1 and 5.

Two venues will be used for the football – the St Brigid's HQ of Russell Park and Silver Park, the home of Kilmacud Crokes. Among those on duty at Brigid's will be Bernard Brogan, Jonny Cooper and Kevin O'Brien.

The coaching crew at Silver Park will include Kevin Nolan, Michael Darragh Macauley and Jack McCaffrey.

The Hurling Camp will also be at St Brigid's. Among the coaches will be Liam Rushe, Shane Durkin and Danny Sutcliffe.

The courses offer the chance to train with the inter-county stars. The week will be action-packed and it will provide conditioned games, skills development, mental preparation, sports nutrition and athletic development.

The young players will get an insight into the life of an inter-county player. All participants will receive a limited edition Elverys Sports Pack. There will also be a skill event which will provide the chance to win a Lenovo laptop.

A limited number of places are left for the camps. More details on www.elverysyouthcamps.gaa.ie.
