I'm not sure but I'd imagine management throwing punches at spectators would not be allowed.

Or spectators throwing punches from the sideline
Kevin Parke in charge at Creggan Sunday.......is he from St Enda's ?
is this all about st enads referee and creggan having st endas managers?

Clubs have the ultimate responsibility for player development pathway. They need to ensure every juvenile has the optimum environment possible to develop and thrive. That's always going to be plan A.

However, it cannot be contested that when this promising juvenile at age 12 enters secondary education, he/she/it will benefit largely if they are in the panel of a hard working and ambitious school team, and maintain this for between 5 and 7 years up until leaving age.

Some of the really ambitious schools could be contributing 10 hours a week into each player.....x 30 weeks a year....by up to 7 years. That's a lot of touches of the ball, a lot of S&C, a lot of flexibility stretching yoga or whatever else.

That has to be an advantage to that player versus the development pathway for an equally promising 12 year old who goes to a school that dosent bother it's ass promoting anything relevant GAA wise.

It's about getting the balance.

There's no doubt that we need to up the ante in board supported coaching activity and games promotion in post primary schools. It's not about winning Mc Rory, it's about ensuring a proper pathway is in place for every potential Antrim footballer of the future, and a talent identification pipeline is established to make sure less and less potentially elite players slip through the net.
what is the optimum environment? Thanks

Clubs help schools and schools should help clubs surely.
U dong want a lad getting to 16/17 and have only had 1 coach moving up with the lad every year no matter how good the club coach is

Lot of stuff on here about the boys going to south Derry schools getting well trained Etc. For a long time belfast secondary schools woeful at promoting GAA. If money can be found for senior management surely some can be found for a secondary schools promotion officer ? Better spend for long term surely?
