Of course they should be taught it, the most under used skill in the game. How many times have you seen goal chances wasted because the forward had to pick the ball up rather than pull first time on it and got caught?
Saying ground hurling and overhead pulling has no place in the game is ridiculous.
From a coaching perspective teaching ground hurling also teaches feet position and wrist work. Who in their right mind would not track kids ground hurling aside of the fact of th go game rules?
Nothing got to do with my username by the way
