Naas AFC Training Day with Derval O’RourkeFirst Training Day

As part of our sponsorship of Naas AFC Soccer Club, we hosted our first ever skills training day with our Brand Ambassador Derval O’Rourke. As a three-time Olympian and World Champion, Derval had lots of inspirational tips to help the young people in our local community. 

Derval started with some warm up drills and high knees, she told the teams that it would help them feel tall and that the fastest people in the world do this every day. 

From heel flicks to hamstring stretches, Derval put the teams through their paces. They had exceptional fun with Derval’s personal favourite, the forward roll (see image right).

This was followed by some more competitive games including relay races and penalty shoot outs. The Green Isle team were very impressed with the level of skill and enthusiasm for all the activities. 

We want to say a massive thank you to Derval and all the coaches who helped make the day a success. 
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event, we look forward to supporting more activites in our local community.
