On Tuesday the 18th of February RIBSA held the second day of a four day Snooker Training Camp to prepare Rodney Goggins, Josh Boileau, Daniel Dempsey and Stephen Bateman for the 2014 EBSA Team and Under 21 Championship Snooker Championships with our National Coach PJ Nolan.
PJ put the players through their paces working on their techniques on the Shender Match Tables from 11am – 4pm in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club in Carlow. The players also practiced training routines to prepare for the Championships which is being held from the 18th to the 29th of March in Romania.
HGJPJ worked on developing a solid playing technique and used his various academy programs to improve the players cue ball control, long potting and match play. Each player received a DVD of his action during the lesson and sports psychology audio to help with their mind fitness.
RIBSA Officials Tony Thorpe and Ger Murray were in Carlow today to wish the players good luck in the Championship in Romania next month and was delighted with the quality of the training at the camp with PJ.
