Under 14 Girls have successful outing in Limerick

 
 
The U14A girls team travelled to Limerick to play in the Limerick Celtics Tournament on last Sunday. This was their first outing this season after having only two training sessions.  Their first game was against the hosts team.

Celtics opened strongly and Ballincollig struggled to score. The first quarter belonged to our hosts but we put in an enormous effort.  The gap at half time was seven points. The second half saw both teams play entertaining basketball.  Ballincollig got within one point but failed to get the vital score and lost 29 to 33.

 

Next up were Meteors from Dublin who were fresh from a twenty point victory over Galway Titans. Meteors went into an eight point to nil lead and Ballincollig were unsettled.  Once the first basket dropped the score was 10 to six at the end of the first quarter.  The second quarter saw an exhibition of defense and we led 15 to 11 at half time.  A great team effort saw us hold out for an impressive 27 to 15 win.

 

During the break before our last game we went for a walk and met the BIG GRANNY who was almost as impressive as our team.

 

Last game was against Galway Titans in what turned out to be another cracker. Both teams fought for every ball, with Ballincollig getting the better of exchanges and leading by seven at half time. Midway through the third quarter Titans went one point up and were looking good.  Ballincollig showed great spirit to lead by three going into the last quarter.  The final quarter saw Ballincollig team work control the game and win 28 to 22.

 

The day was a great success with every player getting their name on the scoresheet and playing their part in what was a tremendous team effort,spirit and are now looking forward to a great season.

COACHING THE COACHES FORUM

HYDRATION AND NUTRITION FOR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

Experts Dr John Bradley and Dr Tom Hill share their expertise and provide guidelines for coaches and parents on how best to prepare athletes (both junior and senior) for performance and recovery from performance.

Dr John Bradley is lecturer in Exercise Physiology and Coaching Science at UCC. Prior to UCC he worked as an Exercise Physiologist with the Scottish Institute of Sport, providing high performance support to elite Scottish and British athletes in a range of sports.

John has a particular research interest in athlete hydration and will share this expertise at the CTC forum.

John takes a practical approach to sports science making it relevant to athlete performance and coaches needs. His sports science background is supplemented with sporting experience as a competitive swimmer, representing Great Britain as a Senior International at numerous events.

He is currently a Technical Member of the Irish Institute of Sport, providing support for talented Irish athletes to ensure high performance and athletic achievement at the highest level.

Cork's Lisa Cummins, the long distance swimmer, who two years ago became the first Irish person to swim the English Channel both ways spending more than 35 hours in the water will give us a practical insight into her hydration and nutrition regime for training and competition.

Dr John's talk is entitled 'Hydration for athletes (and coaches)' and he will present a user-friendly guide to what to drink and when to drink it. Practical ways to judge if your athlete is hydrated will be discussed and the best drink for your athletes will be revealed

Very often athletes will seek nutrition advice from their coach. Dr Tom's talk entitled 'Eat to Compete: The coaches perspective' will practically examine how the coach can take a lead in implementing basic but effective nutrition strategies.

Dr Tom Hill is a registered nutritionist and part-time lecturer in Nutrition in the School of Food and Nutritional Science UCC. He has worked on diet and nutrition issues with players, athletes and teams across a range of sports including gaelic football, rugby, soccer, basketball, sailing and athletics.

He has also published numerous research articles and book chapters in nutrition and his main research interest is the role of nutrition in musculoskeletal health. He has played rugby for UCC and is currently involved in coaching youth rugby.

The very topical role of sports nutrition supplements will also be explored.
