Our National Coach PJ Nolan held his final training camp on Wednesday the 11th of May in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club in Carlow from 11am – 4pm to prepare our RIBSA players for the 2016 EBSA Snooker Championships.
PJ worked with Michael Judge and Robert Murphy today on their Break Building, Long Potting and Safety games. PJ gave them a training plan to prepare for the European Snooker Championship which will be held from the 31st of May to the 11th of June in the city of Vilnuis in Lithuania.
Irish International player Mark Owens from Dublin joined in for Match Practice with the boys and PJ also worked on the psychology of the game which is vital at this level. Each player received a DVD of his action during the lesson and sports psychology booklet and audio to help with their mind fitness
