Phase 1 – Get a Grip (6-8 years approx.)

The main objective of this phase is to learn all the fundamental movement skills of Camogie such as correct running, jumping, and throwing techniques. These movement skills should be taught in a positive manner using an organised and fun approach. Speed, power, strength and endurance are also developed in this phase in accordance with the level and ability of the physical development of the Camogie player. It is important that the Camogie player participates in as many sports as possible during this phase to further develop the fundamental movement skills.
