Is there anything you havenít done ffs ::)

I know it is somewhat down to parents / coaches but if you think U10ís arenít competitive in their own right your very mistaken.

Kids are inherently competitive and that's a good thing which can be harnessed in the correct manner.

What MR2 is talking about is something different when coaches and parents think they're shouting at adults in a senior championship game rather than a bunch of 10 or 12 year olds.

It's hard to get through to a coach that winning isn't important as wrongly they think they are judged by results, well by those with a titter of wit.

It's good. It raises the age in which kids play competitively from 12 to 13. Less pressure. More fun.

I take it you donít coach any U10ís or 12ís or been to any of the blitzes or tournaments.?

This age change will make zero difference.

Maybe I should've clarified what I meant a bit better.  I meant that kids will not be taking part in any formal divisional board or county run competitions.  If individual clubs run competitive tournaments then of course people will be competitive and as MR said, overly competitive to the point where it's stupid.  If coaches and parents can't hold themselves back at those competitions, then that isn't the fault of the county board.  The county imo making formal competition starting at 13 is a good thing.  If clubs, coaches and paretns choose to be OVERLY competitive below that then that in my opinion that's wrong.  You can't take competitiveness out of kids but you can control the arena in which they play.

I think the new u13 age group should still be very much about participation rather than winning leagues or c/ships. Everyone should get game time at this level.
Only from the new u15 level up should clubs start picking their 'best 15' etc.

What about the Feile, will it move from u14 to u13 or u15?

Will u19 replace the old U18 or does it replace U21 ? Will there be an all county U19 league or is it just championship like U21?
