Junior Development 2019
We are getting ready to startup the Junior Development Programme for 2019. Here are some important dates for your diary…
Junior Development Days
We will be organising a number of development days for players age 9-18 of all skill levels, including beginners from any club. If your club has younger players just starting out they would be very welcome to get involved.
The dates are as follows
* Saturday March 9th, 2019 – Mullingar
* Sunday April 7th, 2019 – Mullingar
* Sunday May 12th, 2019 – Kilcock
* Saturday June 1st, 2019 – Mullingar
* Sunday July 21st, 2019 – Kilcock
* August 17th & 18th – Overload! Mullingar
This year we want to put a particular emphasis on getting new players into our sport and are encouraging younger players from aged 9 upwards to come along and avail of the development days.
Overload! our two-day canoe polo camp returns to Mullingar again on 17-18 August in Mullingar. The format will be similar to last year with a couple of twists. More details and booking form to follow.
Kilcock Junior Competition
Kilcock is running a one-day Junior competition on 22nd June.
Again, if your club isn’t fielding a team but you would like to play, let us know and we will match you up with a club looking for a player.
Belfast Junior International
The Belfast Junior International will take place from 31st July until Sunday 4th August, promising to be a another world class event, with clubs expected from over 20 countries at the Lets Go Hydro centre.
This year, NCPC/Junior Development Programme is not running a Squad selection process – all teams will be Club teams, so everyone of an appropriate age has a chance to participate if they wish – your club will be responsible for selecting and entering teams.
However, if you would like to play on an under 15 or under 18 team and your club is not participating, let us know at the first Development Day (March 9th) and we will find you a team.
