This week we held our LSA Summer Camp 2022. 132 children participated over three fun filled days at Ballymastone. They enjoyed events such as sprints, hurdles, high jump, long jump, shot putt, javelin & discus. We also had a games station and a chill out yoga station.
I think we can safely claim that it was a massive success from all the positive comments and feedback. This was down to the huge team of coaches and volunteers who gave their time so enthusiastically to make it a great experience for all. Many thanks to the 2022 LSA Summer Camp Team and especially our Youth helpers who were a huge hit with the kids. Thanks to Kelly Anne of Mind to Motion and Gavin Halpin of GH Fitness who ran a strength and conditioning zone. This was a new addition this year. Thanks to Diesel Ireland for sponsoring our SC tees. We would be unable to host our camp without the use of the beautiful grounds at St.Pats GAA, Ballymastone. A big thanks to St. Pats GAA and especially to grounds keeper Mick Dignam who was kind enough to mark out a Sprints track for us.
We look forward already to hosting next years camp and hope to have an even bigger intake next year.
The LSA committee would like to sincerely thank all of our volunteers for making this year such a success.
Thanks to all our wonderful Volunteers and Coaches:
Taz, Amelia & Jacob, Enda, Louise , Ellen & Anna, Fiona, Alison& Michelle, Ruth & Reuben, Sarah R & Sarah M, Andrea, Sam & Jack, Brian, Nicole & Luke, Ali , Kelly, Sophie, Edith, Nelma, Nuala, Tracey, Kevin A, Dylan & Kevin C, Sumeia, Ellie & Katie, Tadhg, Steven, Karen & Nikki.
