I think it was said here before and I agree. Hurling played in the wet and muck of Autumn/Winter does nothing to promote the game. It’s a Summer game.
Winning should not be the main focus at underage level, it should be used to improve the skill level of ALL children.
I encourage all players to practice on their own even if only for 5 minutes a day and this will improve their touch and hand eye co-ordination.
