Junior Coaching

We are delighted to be able to offer croquet coaching for Junior Carrickmines members this spring.


The coaching lessons will initially last for 6 weeks, starting after the Easter Holidays. They will be held on a Tuesday or Thursday, starting after school, and lasting about an hour. They will be aimed at 8 to 14 year olds but we can be flexible depending on demand. If the lessons are successful we aim to develop a full croquet development programme at Carrickmines over the next year, with a view to encouraging all junior members to give croquet a go and hopefully bring on the next generation of Irish International croquet players.


The coaching will be run by our Junior Croquet Director Anne-Marie McGowan who will be assisted by other croquet playing Carrickmines members.


If you (or more importantly your children!) are interested in joining the classes please let Anne-Marie or Sandy know, with an indication of whether a Tuesday or Thursday might suit you best. Note that this will be a series of lessons designed to develop croquet skills, and we are looking for children who can attend all or at least nearly all of the lessons. If you want to know more please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will also be holding a Croquet Open Afternoon on Sunday 9thApril, starting at 2pm, when you and your kids can have a go at croquet and ask any questions you might have about the our coaching programmes.


There will be no charge for the coaching!
