Camogie Go Games 2011

'Go Games' has been introduces at Under 12 down in Camogie throughout
Ireland for 2011.

The 'Go Games' Model is defined as:
There is full participation for players
Games are organised in a non competitive way (results are not recorded)
Games are small sided
Playing rules are modified to suit the development stages of the children
Playing area & Equipment is modified

What are the advantages of 'Go Games'?
Games are small sided and all players get to play
Games are played in a fun environment with emphasis on improving skills
Children are not subject to the win at all costs approach

Research has shown that in 'GO Games':
Players worked harder therefore increasing fitness levels
Players had more contact with the ball leading to increased
opportunities to score, make
decisions, develop skills
The children also reported a greater level of enjoyment and had higher
level of perceived
competence (self esteem)
