  • Nov 08,2017

The CPSU is delighted to invite boys and girls (born 2003/2004) to one of seven talent identification sessions happening all around the country in the coming fortnight.

These sessions will be approximately three hours long to allow each Regional Academy head coach and their staff to select a number of players to be invited to participate in the Regional Academies for the 2017/2018 season. The Regional Academies have been established to provide higher level skill development opportunities, and will become a platform for selection for future Irish internationals

Those players who have been already selected based on their performance at the BIPPS tournament are not required to attend these sessions.

If in doubt, please contact the Regional Academy head coach in your region for clarification.
