Golden Falls Coach Daryl Higgins is about as fit as is possible at this time of the year. Having just completed over two months of concentrated training at the famous McCormick’s Ski School near Tampa in Florida, he arrived home on Wednesday just in time for a busy weekend of study. Selected by the Irish Waterski & Wakeboard Federation late last year to take the single place available for the structured Tutor Course at the University of Limerick, this will be the first weekend of six for him before our season starts.

When Daryl completes the Tutor Course organised by Coaching Ireland, he will then be qualified to hold Coaching Courses for other Clubs. Hopefully this will help to give our Club a new focus and to help other Clubs raise their standards.

SOME FOLKS HAVE ALL THE LUCK !

THE DEEGAN FAMILY JOIN DARYL  AT McCORMICKS

DARYL SHARES THE WATER WITH ALL THE DEEGAN FAMILY

DARYL SHARES THE WATER WITH ALL THE DEEGAN FAMILY

While our snow has disappeared, its not quite as warm as at McCormicks in Florida. How about this for a happy Christmas scene ! Just a few days after Daryl arrived at the Lake for some winter training, his first Golden Falls visitors arrived – and all FIVE were Deegans. Here you can see that Michael McCormick is looking after all our Golden Falls members very well. What a way to enjoy the holiday !

This extra time on the water will certainly push all these athletes up the Ranking Tables back home next Summer. Brid, Rick, Daryl, Adam and Aisling are all looking happy for a very good reason ! Watch this space.
