The Juvenile Club received its Benchmark 2020 Vision Gold Category Award for coaching excellence and best practice from Rebel Óg at a Benchmarking Rewards Conference in Nemo Rangers GAA Club on Saturday, 11th February.
There were over 70 clubs in attendance to receive Gold, Silver and Bronze category awards. Carrigtwohill were one of 18 clubs to receive the top award.
Prior to the awards presentation, a practical workshop in Games Based Coaching was presented by Carrig man, Noel Furlong. Noel, manager of the successful U14 Cork teams which won the Tony Forristal and Sony Walsh All-Ireland competitions in 2016, is one of the main proponents of this innovative means of GAA coaching.
A big well done to everybody who has been involved in any way in the Juvenile Club during 2016. This award is the result of a great team effort.
