RIBSA Hold Successful Summer Camp

The Republic of Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association held another successful RIBSA Summer Camp in the Ivy Rooms in Carlow on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of June.

The RIBSA Summer Camps are held each year to allow our members train in a camp with our National Coach who is also a WPBSA Coach and Head of Coaching in the European Billiards & Snooker Association.

A variety of ages from our members in Junior, Intermediate, Masters and Senior levels attended this years summer camp with our National Snooker Coach PJ Nolan.

PJ used his alignment laser to help go get the players into a good address position and worked on their cue actions to cue smoother to deliver the cue more consistent using his 360 Cue, Blade Cue and new EBSA Coaching Balls.

Each student received Group Coaching, CD of the lesson, Coaching Technique Profile and Training Booklet. The price was €15.00 per day for training from 11am – 4pm. The players were available to choose one or both days and the summer camp was open to all RIBSA players.

In attendance at this years Summer Camp was the current National U-14 Champion Aaron Smith from Potters SC who will represent RIBSA in the Celtic Challenge this weekend against Wales.

National Coach PJ Nolan said ‘’ He was delighted with the turn out and he was impressed with the talent on show and he hoped the players enjoyed the camp.

The players were given a Masterclass on Techniques and they practiced various routines to work on their Cue Ball Control, Technique, Break Building, Long Potting and Tactical Game.

The players also received a sports psychology booklet to get them get into the winning zone for the coming season. All the players were excellent and listened very hard to improve their games.

RIBSA would like to thank all the players for attending and to the Ivy Rooms SC Carlow for hosting this year’s Summer Camp.
