Kerry Ladies in association with Munster Ladies Gaelic Football Association will be running two workshops in the coming weeks

All courses are practical based and will give coaches loads more ideas to incorporate in their training plans.

Saturday February 16: Key2Coaching 2 at 10am. Venue to be confirmed. Cost per person will be €10. The workshop is ideal for coaching of U-14 to adult teams. The workshop will involve a typical training session delivered by qualified tutors with an opportunity for coaches to observe, analyse and question aspects of the session.

Saturday March 9: GoalKeeping at 10am. Venue to be confirmed. Cost per person will be €10. The workshop will deal with all the aspects of coaching goalkeepers including games and activities to improve handling, positioning and communication.

If you are interested in booking a place on either of these workshops please log onto Kerry ladies website for details.

Gaelic4Girls 2013

Clubs are also invited to apply for the Gaelic4Girls 2013 (G4G) programme. G4G is a 12-week programme incorporating coaching sessions with fun non-competitive blitzes aimed at increasing participation in Ladies Gaelic Football. The programme targets girls aged between 9-13 years who are not currently registered with a Ladies Gaelic Football club. In essence, this is a tool to attract new players. Free training will be provided to coaches and officers. Deadline for receipt of applications is February 15. Details are available on Kerry ladies website.

NFL v Fermanagh

The Kerry senior ladies team travel the long distance to Fermanagh in the league this Sunday.

In the corresponding fixture in 2012 Kerry had the upper hand on Fermanagh beating them comprehensively in Kilcummin, scoreline Kerry 3-23 Fermanagh 4-7. It was a shoot out between both sets of forwards on the day with questions being asked of both sets of defenders. Caroline Little Fermanagh was top scorer on the day with an impressive tally of 3-2.

Fermanagh were narrowly beaten in the All Intermediate semi-final by Waterford last September but had a good start to the league beating Clare. They came unstuck against Westmeath in the second round when they were defeated heavily so they will be keen to make amends.

But with Kerry forwards on fire at the moment, we are hoping to post another few points on the board. However Kerry will be without the services of Emma Sherwood, Louise Galvin, Sarah Houlihan, Rosie Young and Breda Lane. Fermanagh will be looking to Caroline Little, Aisling Moane and Sharon Little for inspiration.
