Testimonials

Damian from Strokestown G.A.C. - Roscommon:
No negatives Kevin everyone enjoyed the weekend and found it beneficial. The Video analysis you did was first class, as was the session with Martin McElkennon. A neighbouring club had a few questions about the weekend since we came back so you might be hearing from them!
 
Gerry from Augher GFC - Tyrone:
" Kevin, just a quick word to thank you for a great day. Everything went off to a tee. The lads really enjoyed it and it was avery worthwhile exercise. It is something I will do again and will be recommending to others."
 
Eoin from Desertmartin G.F.C. - Derry:
" The weekend was a huge success, very positive feedback from the squad about the accommodation and the training session taken by Malachy O'Rourke & Leo McBride. On the whole, the weekend was excellent and if we get the opportunity for another Team Building break we'd have no hesitation in coming back to use Break For Ball."
 
Jim from Kilcoo - Down:
"On reflection, I have no doubt in saying that the Break for Ball Team Building Weekend played a significant role in our success this year. A number of younger players were brought into the squad this year and considering the difference will be 10/11 years in some cases, this allowed for all players to intermix and to fully enjoy themselves. In preparation on the football field, training sessions and game planning, the surfing on the beach, John O'mahony's talk, it was superb, and I have no doubt that in travelling together, having meals together and the team meetings all contributed in no uncertain way to our overall success at the end of the year."

 
John - Raharny Senior Hurling Manager County Westmeath:
 "I would just like to thank you and Break For Ball for a great weekend in Avon Ri in Wicklow. Everything was perfect - great facilities and it all ran exactly with the itinerary. It worked out great as a pre season bonding session and we could not ask for anymore than that as the lads enjoyed every minute of it. The archery, kayaking and the Adventure Run was great, Challenge Match was good as well. On the Sunday morning the Video Analysis and the chat with Paudie Butler was exceptional and a huge help to the lads who all got something out of it. So on that note we would sincerely recommend this to any club or organisation.

 

Mark - Senior Team Manager, St. Mary's Camogie Club, County Antrim:
" A fabulous weekend in a stunning location. Who needs Spain when you have Donegal! Everything was so handy with the pitch and beach so close to the hotel. The sessions on and off the pitch with Emmett McKeever were top class and has really focused the squad for the months ahead. Following that the lads from Turf'n'Surf were great craic and the activites on and off the beach had everyone in great form. The day was finished off with a lovely group meal and some karaoke singing that went on into the wee hours. I think it has had the desired effect and there is a great buzz around the squad. Thanks again to Breakforball for organising an excellent package and Sinead who helped the day run smoothly onsite."
 
Alex - Manager of McQuillans Ballycastle Senior Hurling Team, County Antrim:
"Our recent training weekend in Donegal Town was a resounding success and we were undoubtedly the beneficiaries of the fine organizational skills of 'Break For Ball'. Our hotel food and training facilities were excellent and tailored to our needs. After our training session we enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi for a much needed recovery session. Break for Ball even managed to provide a weekend of sunshine - a rare event for Donegal! The Ballycastle hurlers will without doubt be back in touch with Kevin for another weekend such as this. Many thanks again!"

 

Eoghan - Official from Oileann Arainn in County Galway:
 Thanks a million for everything, we had a great time. Avon Ri is ideal for activities, pitch facilities, and just a really beautiful place. The house style of accommodation, we found preferable to hotel rooms. The pool recovery was very good, and the Orienteering/ Team Building was a great laugh; we were all absolutely wrecked after it, which was a good sign. Dinner was also lovely that night, absolutely lovely.
Access to the pool Sunday morn was also a big help; water helps cure a lot of things! We also found the Sports Nutrition talk very good. The majority had a good interest in it and it was definitely very informative and helpful. Overall we really enjoyed the weekend, we haven't had a great start to the season so it was great for us to get together away from our usual training routine, and do something totally different to our usual training. Once again thanks for all your help, we will definitely be recommending your weekends to anybody who asks. You might see us again at some stage in future!
 
Ray - Manager of St. Faithleach's Roscommon:
Our challenge game was a draw and was very intense like our weekend. It was great to finish this way. The weekend was very worthwhile and well organised which left both management and players free to concentrate on getting most out ofwhat we were doing. Surfing was mighty craic and the guys were great leaving us off doing our own thing but were at hand if we needed any help or advice. Orange parade was most amusing!! Dermot was very helpful as were staff at the hotel who sorted out the meeting room for us Sunday morning. Jimmy McGuinness's session was excellent and brilliant advice was given and hopefully taken on board! Dinner was good and the staff wasted no time getting us sorted which was perfect as we did not want to be hanging around. I would recommend Break for Ball to anyone involved in any club or county team as the organisation was first class and whilst the cost was very resonable the facilities and treatment we received did not suffer as a result! We will have no hesitation in contacting you again should we plan another training weekend. Thank you very much!
