Sláinte's Power League Teams are the perfect fit for players with prior club experience who are wholeheartedly committed to practice and play. These teams strike a balance between learning and succeeding, offering valuable opportunities for growth.

Non-League Beginner Tournament Teams - Dynamo Squad
The Dynamo Squad will be a group of players, carefully selected based on their advanced beginner skill level. These selected players will practice separately from the Winter RYP Group, within their own age group. The Dynamo Squad members will be given the opportunity to participate in tournaments, showcasing their skills and competing against other teams.
To ensure a high level of commitment and dedication from the Dynamo Squad members, attendance will be closely monitored at every practice session. We understand that other commitments may arise, and we value the importance of balance in children's lives. However, to be considered for tournament play, players must attend a minimum of 75% of the practices leading up to each event. This will also ensure that players who consistently attend practices can execute plays effectively during tournaments, leading to a more rewarding experience for all.
As an example, let's consider an age group OF 12 year old with 30 players. If there are four practices before a tournament and a player misses more than one practice, they will not be invited to participate in the tournament. However, they are welcome to continue attending practices for further skill development.
Each month, we will restart this process, evaluating attendance and inviting players to participate in the tournaments accordingly. In an ideal scenario where all 30 players attend all practices, we will field three teams for the tournament. The number of teams formed will depend on how many players meet the baseline attendance requirement.
We believe that this restructuring will enhance the growth and performance of our young athletes, allowing them to flourish both on and off the field. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a successful and rewarding season with the Dynamo Squad!
