Eagle-Shot-09May2017a-620pix

Eagle AC held its first ever shot putt tutorial at the CIT track on Tuesday the 9th of May with 6 members taking part. Everyone was taken through the basic rules of the sport as well as some basic techniques. Even though it was the first experience of the shot putt for many, everyone passed with flying colours! 🙂

The primary purpose of the tutorial which was coached by John Desmond was to establish a pool of members who might considering representing the club in masters competitions at County and Munster level in the future.
