The Club are delighted to announce that Martin Scaffolding have taken over as sponsor of our Underage Boys Academy for the next 3 years. This is the first time that The Academy has been sponsored.
This is a most welcome development as it means that all our team coaches will be uniformly kitted out in similar playing gear for the very first time.
Over the past few years, Brian Martin, Managing Director of Martin Scaffolding and his company have provided sponsorship for other Shamrocks projects including Club Chiaráin and this has now been extended to cover all Academy Activities until the summer of 2024.
Martin Scaffoldings support for the Academy coaching and development programme, including the supply of playing gear and equipment demonstrates the company’s commitment to the youth of today and to the future of the Shamrocks Club.
The Academy takes place every Friday evening both at the pitch in Shanbally and in the NMCI College in Ringaskiddy during the Autumn, Winter and Spring months. We cater for boys aged 4 to 11 years of age.
The Juvenile Committee in the club strive to ensure that each boy and girl reach their full playing potential through fun, games and enjoyment. This is down to our hard working Juvenile Committee and Coaches who ensure that our players receive high quality coaching and games in a safe, fun environment.
Each boy and girl learns to participate in a team sport from an early age and they automatically learn life skills such as self-development, fitness and well-being.
Hundreds of children have represented the club with pride down through the years and we continue to develop our players to be our future stars in Gaelic Games. This is further enhanced by the generous sponsorship of Martin Scaffolding.
