To all parents/guardians. We require more coaches/assistant coaches/help for juvenile training on Tuesdays and Thursdays. At the moment we are relying on a small number of coaches who giving their free time up to 4 times a week. Last year Naas AC won the best Juvenile club of the year in Kildare but we require more help this year to support the current coaches and to achieve the same standards. Can you please let any of the present coaches know if you are willng to help out? You don't need to be an expert as coaching courses are available and the current coaches can pass on their knowledge and experience. All coaches are subject to Gardai vetting.
