Hydebank Game of Three Halves

November 30th, 2011

Forty eight young men from Hydebank took part in a Game of Three Halves event on Sunday 30th October. Ulster GAA, Ulster Rugby, the I.F.A coaches delivered coaching of the basic skills from each of the sports, drawing the day to a close with an opportunity to play a game of each sport. Peaceplayers International were on-hand to deliver some thought-provoking discussions to correspond with the positive impact on the young men trying new sports in a team environment.

Ulster GAA’s involvement came about as a result of their partnership in the Game of Three Halves initiative, in conjunction with the I.F.A and Ulster Rugby. Ulster GAA’s Diarmaid Marsden and Tony Scullion were very impressed with the positive response, and enthusiasm from the participants. Hydebank management were grateful of the professionalism of all coaches involved and welcomed plans to extend the programme to other sections of their operations.
