The GAA season is well and truly underway in Ballinasloe with all age groups back training.
Their Nursery programme is also up and running on Saturday mornings from 10.30am to 11.30am and is open to new members, boys and girls, to come and try it out. The age groups catered for in this programme are Boys U7 (years of birth 2015/2016/2017) and Girls U6 (Years of Birth 2016/2017). It introduces this age group to both Hurling and Football in a fun way and is a great for developing their coordination and general fitness.
The main emphasis is making sure that the kids have fun and enjoy themselves in a safe supervised environment. For more information on this programme contact Shane Kenny on 086 3624580 or Gary Coyne on 086 3871872.
