U13s start Championship today

posted 2 Jun 2013, 23:48 by Unknown user
Kinvara U13s hurlers travel over to Abbeyknockmoy this morning to begin their championship season. 
This is always a tough fixture against the Abbey boys, but no doubt our lads will be up for it. Its actually a young team for Kinvara, with only 3 lads born on the age, which will have us at a disadvantage against all teams in the group. However, what we may lack in age, we will make up for it in heart and spirit!

Best of luck to all involved!

U13 B1 - Abbeyknockmoy, Ahacragh-Fohenagh, Kilimordaly, Kinvara, Portumna, Michael Cusacks, Mullagh and Tommy Larkins.

At U13 level we are competing in Grade B1 (the fourth grade of five......A, A1, B, B1, and C).
Here how it works…
- So there will be 5 different championship grades, and each of these will have a shield competition.
- therefore of the starting say 44 teams….10 will lift a cup……20 will reach a final…….40 will reach semi-finals.
- for example, take the U13 B1. 
* This has just one group of 8 teams
* each team plays each other (therefore 7 group matches each)
* in the final group standings, the top 4 sides go into the Championship semi-finals, the bottom 4 sides head for the Shield semi-finals. (each side now has minimum of 8 matches, and each side will play in a semi-final).
* winners of semi's play in U13 B1 Championship Final or U13 B1 Shield Final.
