Let's Tog Out Anyway - By James Jim bob Ryan

As a Coach and Selector for U20s Limerick GAA James sees the rewards of guiding, teaching, and inspiring kids. There is nothing better than running an exuberant practice that leaves kids with beaming smiles on their faces. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing your young athletes blossom as they grow up.

While the work coaches do is fulfilling, it also comes with immense responsibility—the care of a human being through all of its physical and mental growth processes. Sure Tog Our Anyway book is aimed at teaching kids and parents that sport is not all about the winning and how the taking part can be more important to children’s development for life ahead!
