Cork youth Development Programme

Cork County Athletics board’s very popular CYDI/Winter coaching will resume this September in the CIT. Last year saw an expansion and development of the programme with new initiatives introduced. Two coaching sessions took place each day with selected CYDI athletes training from 1 to 2.30pm followed by an open session from 2.30 to 4pm. The aim for the CYDI group was to focus on the challenge of making qualifying standards for European Youth Olympics. The coaches and administrators would like to congratulate Aoife O’Sullivan Liscarroll AC on achieving the standard and being selected on the Irish team for Bachu where Aoife made the final in the high jump. We would also like to congratulate Adam Turner Belgooly AC who secured his first international selection for the Irish Schools in the SIAB and for the Irish team for the nation’s cup. Both were regular attendees at last year’s sessions. Not forgetting one of our coaches Shane Howard Bandon AC who got his first international call up to represent Ireland in the European Team League First Division. Shane has proven if you keep training and keep believing it can happen. 

Following a review of last year’s programme by the coaches and feedback from athletes and parents the following will be the programme for this year.

Munster Juvenile U14 – U19 Track & Field Championship 2017

Athletes took part in the Munster track & field events in CIT over the weekend of 17 & 18 June. In the extremely hot conditions there were some exciting events.

Glory Wenegieme taking gold in the 200m in a new Munster record of 24.49 secs and joint first in the 80m with a silver in the 800m. Billy O’Riordan found the conditions extremely exhausting but put everything he could muster into his events, well done Billy.

Adam Turner qualified for the All-Ireland U15 long jump competition.

The boys U14 relay squad pushed each other to a Munster track record for the 4 x 100m relay. There are 6 athletes on the panel at present, Timmy Hawkins, Sean Carmody, Max O’Reilly, Billy O’Riordan with Glory and Praise Wenegieme. It’s great to see each one pushing the others for a place in the relay so much that it produced a Munster record for the 4 that ran.

Sarah Cooper & Coaimhe Henchy also took part on the weekend and although their training was interrupted by exams they still produced brilliant performances on the day.
