First Aid Training


Usually if we’re in a pub this early on a Saturday morning it’s because we still haven’t left  However this time was different as Sven Bartens from eins eins drei took members of Hamburg GAA through their paces in a day of first aid training.

If your team has been thinking of learning first aid (you should), we highly recommend Sven who offers training in English and German. You never know what kind of injuries are going to happen in a match and it’s better to have as many as possible able to recognise and handle them appropriately.

Thanks to Andy at The Irish Rover, Hamburg for daring to let a GAA team in at 9am.

Honourable mention to Sven’s assistant Bob who endured more than any training dummy should have to.

Kids and Youth Coaching Course in Munich

Hamburg GAA’s cornerstone of the full-back line, Children’s Officer, and chief motivator, Arnold Morascher, recently attended a kids and youth coaching course in Munich organised by the German GAA / Deutscher Bund Gälischer Sportarten.

Arnold was joined by over a dozen other coaches from the likes of Rómhánaigh Augsburg Óg, Setanta Berlin GAA and Munich Colmcilles GAA. O’Reilly (ó Uíbh Fhailí) took them through what it takes, combining theory with practical games, drills and coaching approaches.

“Liam was very good at keeping us not only busy and involved, but also in giving us the opportunities to bring in our own ideas and there was plenty of space for discussion and craic.”

We can’t wait to see Arnold put his new skills to use when he begins our upcoming school coaching sessions and we are even more excited at the prospect of a youth tournament in the future!

A big thanks to all involved for making this possible!
