The 2015 season of underage football training at the Letterkenny Gaels kicks off thIs Friday 6th February. The club provides an introductory 6 week period of indoor training before moving outside to the pitches at Pairc na nGael in the middle of March.

The indoor training is an excellent opportunity for new boys and girls to join in the fun. The club coaches will focus on introducing new underage players to the basic skills of Gaelic football in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. The outdoor training schedule also includes a series of non-competitive blitz games arranged with other clubs in a inclusive, fun and family orientated environment. Letterkenny Gaels club coaches are Garda vetted and GAA accredited.

Under 6 and Under 8 training starts on Friday 6th February at 6:00pm and 6:45pm respectively in the Gym Hall at Woodland School. Under 10 and Under 12 training starts in the Aura leisure centre on Friday the 6th February at 7pm.

The underage football structure at Letterkenny Gaels has gone from strength to strength over the years. The majority of the players on the senior team that secured the Division 4 league title came through the underage ranks of the club.  The underage teams at Letterkenny Gaels also had a very successful year in 2014 and hope to build on this in 2015.
