Our Senior Ladies made the trip to Dublin to play Tolka Rovers in the Senior Women’s
National Cup.  A squad of eleven players travelled to play a fancied Rovers side in Glasnevin.
A tough opening quarter saw both teams concentrating on defence. The quarter ended with the side’s level. The second quarter was equally as tough as neither team gave their opponents clear cut scoring chances. Ballincollig led by three at the half time break after withstanding serious pressure throughout the quarter.

In what was a physical battle Tolka were winning the battle of the rebounds. Ballincollig continue to pick off 
scores and finished the quarter one point to the good. The value of a good bench and team ethic turned the game at the start of the fourth quarter. Leading by one point our youngest and newest addition to the team was the eleventh player off the bench and she provided or the two stunning scores to give us a five point lead. This was the closest our opponents came to us and the win was sealed with two late scores.  A nine point win was fully deserved after a tremendous team display. Ballincollig must now return to Dublin on Dec 6th to take on Meteors who are considered to be one of the favourites for the Cup.  To reach the quarter final stages of the Senior Women’s National Cup is a great achievement for a group of players who have given great commitment to the club since underage.  The team are now in bonus territory and are looking forward to upsetting  Meteors  and progressing further in the competition.
 
U14C girls made the trip to Crosshaven on Saturday to take on the home side. Ballincollig girls are showing a steady improvement and had a great win.

U18 girls went to Youghal and while not playing  to their potential they did enough to gain points on the day.

Division 2 Ladies also went to Youghal and continue their recent good run with a comfortable victory.

U16B girls played Glanmire in Upper Glanmire in the quarter final of the championship. A comfortable win was recorded by a Ballincollig team that has not yet played to their full potential this year.

It’s been a busy time for our Ladies section.

 

Premier Ladies who travelled to Mallow a venue that is always hard to get a win.  After a slow start we settled and were five behind at half time. We were still two down entering the last quarter. We won by five points in what was a well deserved victory.

 

18B were also in Mallow and the game was similar to the Premier game.

While playing well we were losing by four at the start of the fourth quarter. Showing tremendous team work we won by two points.

Overall a good night works in Mallow.

 

12B played Blue Demons and came away with a very convincing win.

Showing great skill they led for the entire game. 16B went to Bandon to take on Lee Valley. Despite been short a number of players they gave their opponents a good game.  They put in a great effort before losing by five points.

 

Premier Ladies were up against Glanmire in their second game in three day. After their exertions in Mallow they lost to a superior Glanmire team, who were sharper on the day.

 

U14A girls were in Midleton to take on the home side.  Midleton girls were no match for a rampant Ballincollig side that showed great promise for the season ahead.

 

In Colaiste Choilm on Sunday 14A playing their second game in two days found their opponents Fr Mathews difficult to handle. We stayed with Fr Mathews until half time, but tiring limbs in the third quarter saw the game slip away. Once again the girls can take a lot of positives from the game.

 

12B hosted St Colms from Limerick on Sunday. With a large squad of players and taking on a physically stronger team we struggled.

However with all players getting court time and never giving up this young side gave as good as they got before losing.

 

U15 girls had their first outing of the season playing St Colms. Showing great determination and lots of good team work they easily overcame their opponents. There was never any doubt of the final result as Ballincollig were always in command.

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.
