Regional Squad dates for 2021/2022

Regional Squad dates for 2021/2022


After a late summer of outstanding athletics, we prepare for 2022 with the announcement of the regional squads and dates for 2021/2022 with key criteria being top 3 in Regional Juvenile Championships

The regional squads provide support and expertise to our emerging young athletes to help them to fulfil their potential along with any coaches who wish to attend.

  • The regions are split into Connaught, Munster, Dublin & Leinster & Ulster
  • The squad sessions complement the work which is carried out by clubs and personal coaches.
  • Our Regional Squads help promising young athletes by providing them with educational and motivational training days, including the opportunity to listen to guest speakers.
  • Apart from providing specialist coaching and training opportunities, these squad sessions give young athletes a chance to meet their peers in a social and non-completive environment.

The Regional Squads are co-ordinated by the Regional Development Officers  with the assistance of high quality coaches and personal coaches who will work towards best practices. Personal coaches are encouraged to be involved on the day.
