Robe Rocket News

By Annette Conway, PRO Robe Rockets Its been a busy few months for our youngest members of the Club with 150 boys and girls under the age of 10 training each week. Both our U10 Boys and U8’s Girls and Boys have played a number of Go Game matches and this week we played the Neale  at U8 and U10’s. A sincere thanks on behalf of all the Coaches and Robe Rocket Committee to all within the Club who help out with referring at these matches as it allows our Coaches to mentor the children.    A picture from our U10 Boys match against the Neale Last weekend at Robe Rockets our U10’s had ice lollies to cool down on Friday evening and our U6’s got biscuits while they took shelter in the stand to dry off on Saturday morning however our U8’s had a surprise visit at the end of training … Mayo Players Diarmuid O’Connor and Stephen Coen popped in to say hello and spread a bit of sunshine and inspiration on an otherwise very wet Saturday morning in the Lough. A very special thanks to Diarmuid and Stephen for taking the time to answer our Rockets questions, sign jerseys and pose for pictures #localheroesmayogaa. Thanks to Joseph Burke and all at J.J. Burke Car Sales for the surprise. Training continues for our U6’s on Saturday mornings, twice a week for our U8’s on Wednesday evening and Saturday morning and U10’s on Tuesday and Friday evening. The future is bright.

Start Collecting for Topaz “Cash for Clubs 2017”

Ballinrobe GAA is now registered for the Topaz Cash for Clubs 2017 and we are asking all Members of the Club, Parents, Players and Coaches to start collecting the Topaz “Cash for Clubs” tokens for us. We were very lucky to win €5000 last year and are looking to build on our success and raise much needed Cash for our Club. The programme offers clubs of all types and sizes from across the island of Ireland the chance to win up to €10,000. The first club drawn will win the top prize of €10,000, while 10 clubs thereafter will win €5,000, and a further 140 will collect €1,000. Check out our winners video from last year below. How it works: We are encouraging all Members of the Club, Parents, Players and Coaches to go that extra mile for our club by collecting ‘Cash for Clubs’ tokens or using a Play or Park game tag which are available in- store or through the Topaz Play or Park app. You’ll receive one token once you spend €30 or more on fuel purchases and once you have linked your game tag to the club; BALLINROBE GAA #2831- MAYO your tokens will be automatically allocated to us. Once a club has collected 2,000 tokens, they will be automatically entered into an ‘everyone-wins’ draw. Cards will be available next week at all training sessions.  See link below https://www.playorpark.ie/cash-for-clubs/how-to-play#
