With the disappointment of relegation now banished from our thoughts, there are exciting times ahead for the coming season in Ballinakill. It's back to basics time and there has been a complete overhaul of the coaching structure that existed for the last number of years, which sees the return of some ex Senior Players and Youth coaches who have agreed to come on board as the new Senior Coaching Team set up namely John Molloy, Nigel Daly, Neil Kennealy and Jerry Miller who will be responsible for the on-field activities of both our First and Second team Squads. These guys will be ably assisted by the Management Team of Alex Tully, Nicky Murphy, Leonard Healy who will be responsible for all the administration tasks that will be required throughout the season.
Since coming on board both the Coaching and Management Teams are working in close proximity with our Rugby Committee on all aspects of the implementation of their new training plans which will be structured to support and develop both the individual players together with team development.
The support team includes a Senior Rugby Coaches, a Rugby Technical Mentor/Advisor, a Strength and Conditioning team, and specialist Support Coaches. Updates on the Coaching and Management structure will be notified when the full details are available.
There will be a Player Strength & Conditioning assessments which will commence on Saturday 16th. July.
Training on-field will commence on Tuesday 19th July and will run each Tuesday and Friday on a weekly basis.
