Fancy a game of Rounders? We’re looking for schools to participate in a Rounders Introduction Day

Cumann na mBunscol Rounders Introduction Day


This school year we intend to relaunch Rounders as part of the annual Cumann na mBunscol range of activities.

As I’m sure you are aware, Rounders is a fantastic team game, suitable for boys and girls. It is a limited contact sport so it’s perfect for both recreational and competitive play. It draws on a different set of skills to other GAA sports, both tactically and physically.

We will be running Rounders introduction days, to be held in the CoE in Bekan before Hallowe’en 2016. Dates are to be confirmed. These days will be facilitated by GAA Rounders coaches and will include:

  • Ball skills
  • Batting skills
  • Throwing drills
  • Running/sprints drills
  • Practice games
  • Team building and having lots of fun!

There will also be a Connacht Rounders Day, to which some of the Mayo schools will be invited.

Initially, this introduction day will be offered to children in 3rd and 4th classes in large schools (4 teachers plus) and 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th in smaller schools.
