2014 Gradings

Rebel Og Independent Gradings Committee 2014
The final Official Gradings for U18, U16, U15, U14, U13 and U12 Football teams in Cork for 2014 are attached.

All appeals have now been considered by the Gradings committee, combined with extensive consultation with the relevant Regional committees.

Many thanks to all those who submitted detailed evidence, both in terms of results and playing numbers, in support of their appeals, as requested.

All entries for second teams have also been included, as requested by clubs.

As of tonight, the various Regional committees will now organise their competitions in line with the gradings.

There is no U13 championship this year, in line with the decision at congress. Regional leagues will be organised.

At U12 level, clubs have been grouped, mainly on a regional basis. Each region will have responsibility for organising their own league competitions.

Work on the hurling gradings has commenced and a first draft will be sent to clubs in the next week or so.
