Super-Touch Blitzes

Super Touch blitzes are organised for the Under-13 to minor age grades in an effort to re-establish the small-sided tournament games structure of years gone by. Games are played on a small-sided basis of 7, 9, or 11-a-side.
Super Touch Blitzes already take place in many counties for Post Primary schools, predominantly aimed at First-Year / students.

Many of the benefits of small-sided games are evident in this type of format, with players having extra space to perform the skills of the game, but equally coming under increased pressure with regard to their positioning and pace. Games are organised in a competitive manner with a rotation system used to ensure all players receive playing time.
