2018 U14 Hurling Development Squad
29th November 2017

Antrim GAA Coaching & Games are pleased to announce the panel selection for the 2018 U14 Hurling Development Squad.

In recent weeks three trials have been held. During these trials players have undergone fitness and skills assessments and feedback will be provided to players, parents and club coaches to assist with the each player’s individual development in the coming season. 

Trial 3 was carried with over 70 players from all over the county teaming together and playing competitive games.

The coaching teams would like to underline to parents, club coaches & supporters that there will be no such thing as having a closed squad. If other players come to the attention of the development squad coaching teams through playing well with their clubs then they may well be invited to re-trial with the current squad.

Likewise, it is up to the selected squad players to ensure they keep up the standards expected of fitness, stick-work, determination & attitude throughout the whole of the forthcoming 2018 season.

These coaching teams have a vast amount of playing and coaching experience at club and inter-county level. 

With their experience, enthusiasm and love of their county we are sure that 2018 will be a fantastic year of development for all players involved.

Antrim GAA Coaching and Games Development Department is delighted to announce the panels & coaching teams for both regions for 2018. There will be a Parents/Players meeting on Sunday 7th of January, at Tir na Og, Randalstown.

Listed below is the squad and players who are asked to attend a retrial. If any club coaches or parents require feedback please contact Head Coaches Declan Heggarty and Paul Donnelly. We would like to thank the clubs and their parents for the support.
