Reaction Time Testing

My name is Teresa and I am a researcher at the UCD Institute for Sport and Health.

My research aims to investigate reaction times in high-level athletes of different sports using a reaction time board (BATAK Pro). 

It is a fun and easy, but effective way to assess the current level of reaction skills in athletes. 

For this study, I am looking for male and female participants that are:
– training and competing at a high-level (national or international)
– 18 to 30 years old,
– healthy, free of injury
– regularly competing (for at least 5 years) in one of the following sports:

Tennis, Table Tennis, Badminton, Olympic Handball, Volleyball, Hockey, Boxing, Karate, Swimming, Running, Sprinting or Cycling (other sports can also be considered, please get in touch if you need additional info).

The reaction time testing is completely free of charge for this research.
See the attached poster for more details and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask! 
Contact me if you are interested (teresa.baumann@ucdconnect.ie) and we can arrange the testing session in the UCD lab as soon as possible!

NEW BALCONY OPENING CEREMONY

Our new balcony was officially opened on Saturday 10th September, following a day of glorious weather during which our junior boys trained, our senior teams played friendly matches, and our U16s played a blitz with the Rockets. The events of the day were followed by a BBQ and drinks.


Kara Browning, TRR HC President, in her opening speech thanked the many members who made financial donations without which the project would have been impossible to complete, and in particular, Ray Tilson and the Haughton family who had been particularly generous with their support. Kara also thanked David Nolan Engineering (the contractors who exceeded our expectations in delivering a project that proved challenging at times), Keith Wallace (who assisted the contractors and who made the concrete steps and bases), Derek Squire (club member and past captain who gave his time and professional expertise during the project), Bernie Keogh (club manager) for her help, and Aidan Egan (Structural Engineer). Kara also took the opportunity of thanking all volunteers, their support is a vital part of the operation of the club and without this support nothing could take place. 


The cutting of the ribbon to officially mark the opening was carried out by Geoff Brooks, TRR HC Trustee, who played a key role in the installation of the original wooden balcony. Geoff in turn thanked Kara for the huge amount of work that she does for the club in her role as TRR HC President, and for delivering the balcony project, which Geoff said was vital in providing a direct path to the bar !!!.

It was great to see so many past and current club officials, pavilion members, playing members, and youth members and their families, all enjoying the event.  The celebrations extended late into the evening, and a good day was had by all.

Bar Survey & Welcome to the 22/23 season!

Welcome to the 2022/23 season

We would like to welcome all our members, old and new, sponsors and supporters to the new 2022/23 season here at Three Rock Rovers Hockey Club! We look forward to seeing everyone back at Grange Road over the coming weeks and months as we see the return of our Ladies Firsts to the top table, the Men’s firsts in the EYHL and our Junior section continues to compete across the board at the highest level in Leinster and Ireland!

We must congratulate all our Rovers, current and aborad, who have represented themselves, the club, Leinster and Ireland over the summer.

Whether that was with the Irish Masters, Leinster U16, U18 or U21 or Ireland U16, U18 or U21, here in Ireland, England, or Holland each and every plyer has represented with aplomb! A particular shout out to Peter Blakeney who was a part of the Irish O35s side that claimed Bronze at the Masters World Cup!

Congratulations to all, after such a prolific summer of representing with Ireland at all age grades we were delighted to see that 34 members from our Juniors have been selected for Leinster ahead of the 2022/23 season! You can see the full list here: Leinster Age Grade Squads.

Within that selection we are delighted to see for the first time, in a few seasons, the inclusion of multiple Girls across all grades! A massive congratulations to all the girls on their hardwork to date and the support provided by their families, friends and coaches over the years!

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Grange Road, the home of Leinster Hockey, Three Rock hockey, hockey for all and all ages!

Bar Survey

At the end of last season a survey was sent to senior club members regarding the use of the bar and how best to manage this in the year ahead. We had 75 responses to this survey (58 men, 17 women, 2 non-playing members). Last season, 69% of those who responded had used the bar, and of those who didnt it not being open was listed as the main reason for it not being used (53.6%).

Overwhelmingly, 98.7% of respondents said that they wanted the bar to remain open. However, close to 3/4 of respondents are aware that the bar is not profitable without the support of volunteers in the club and 90% are in support of using volunteers in order to keep it open if the alternative was that the bar would have to close.

Based on these responses the committee and council will plan for the year ahead on the basis that the bar is to remain open with volunteer support from members required to ensure that this happens. A number of options are proposed for this with a focus on the following:
1) usual weekend activities
2) external events

1) Usual weekend activities
Last year we trialled the option of bar captains where each team had an bar captains responsible for requesting the bar be opened for teams. To allow appropriate time to manage opening procedures, order stock, set up and clean the clubhouse, bar captains had to contact the club manager to arrange procedures.

Half of respondents felt this was a good system to try again for the year ahead with another 38% feeling that a weekly rota per team may be the best option.

Given that there was a lack of awareness of the bar captain system we have decided to run it again for the year ahead, but are promoting it immediately as the main method of opening the bar. We would also like to run monthly events with teams assigned to a month in order to run the bar and increase the regular hours.

To ensure its success, we will be offering bar training for team members to help with this. Training will be run during our first social event of the season on September 10th with more details to follow.

2) External events
External events such as Cup Finals and Vets Fest are how the bar remains operational. Given the positive response regarding volunteering for these events in order to keep the bar open, we will be trailing a system this year where each senior team is assigned an event to cover and manage. These slots will be supported by the club manager to help those behind the bar.

We will outline this rota to team captains during the season and look forward to the first season in three years where we hopefully be able to operate the bar with more regular hours and events!

Official Balcony opening

Thanks to the hard work of many people over the past couple of years we are now in a position to say that the clubouse balcony has been repalced over the summer and will be open for the 2022/23 season!

You’ll have heard we’re having an official opening ceremony of the new balcony on the evening of Saturday 10th of September 2022!

The day will consist of selection matches, opening balcony ceremony along with a BBQ, the club house will also be open for the evening.

We would like to ask you to fill out this form if attending. We are very excited to celebrate the official opening of the new balcony and hope to see everyone there!https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLScITHDNrgXG88…/viewform

Well Done Ali!

Massive shout out to our very own Alison Keogh, our third team superstar and Rover who is representing on the biggest of stages these days!


She earned her 100TH CAP over the weekend during the International Hockey Federation (FIH) Pro League match between England and Germany as well as becoming the FIRST female umpire to officiate two pro league matches in the one day!


She earned her golden whistle with her 100th cap and is constantly showing that hard work and dedication can get you absolutely anywhere! Everyone at the club could not be prouder of her and look forward to further exploits over the summer and years to come.

Vets Festival 2022

Yes, you read that right, Vets Fest returned this year after a very long hiatus!
Words kindly provided by Bernie Keogh

After a covid-induced break of three years, the annual Vets Fest was held again in TRR over the June bank holiday weekend. This festival raises much needed income for the club each year it is held, and is a successful key event in the club social calendar. Initial plans for the event had been made and progressed by Naomi Heritage, and when Naomi had to step down Janet Jolley very kindly stepped in to make sure that the event could go ahead. Natalie Rule, with her vast experience of previous vets fest organising, offered her help and with the added support and assistance of long-standing dedicated TRR volunteers Orla McKeown, Bruce Johnson, WIlliam Haughton and Cedric Christie in their various roles, the event was a great success.

Umpires played a key part, and we were very grateful to Nick West, Jess Rule, Guy and Gillian Garrett, Doug Murray and Dorothy Kennedy for volunteering their services. The bar was staffed by Kara (TRR President) and her family (Gary, Zoe, and Jack) plus Shane O’Brien’s brother Ronan (who we hope to have helping us for future bar functions) and Don Gray (who kindly stepped in at short notice)..

Huge thanks to Simon Walker, who sponsored burgers for the Friday night BBQ, and to Peter Hinds who purchased and donated a number of large bar jugs for the event while the balcony was out of use. Thanks also to Joe Ryan (Boss Tills), who as usual has been a bighelp to the club by donating the use of a second bar till for the duration of vets fest. It involved two callouts, and some temporary changes to the set up, so we really appreciate this kindness and support from Joe. Thanks also to Diageo, for providing plastic glasses, uniforms, trays, and sanistiser, and also to Fergal Funge of Bulmers Ireland who donated two boxes of plastic glasses.

Cian Mooney and his staff provided catering for the festival for the first time, and provided an efficient and quality food service with very positive feedback. Cian is our regular club caterer, and can cater for private functions and events. The tournament meal on Saturday night was held in Taylors Three Rock, and we are also grateful to them for providing a lovely meal and an efficient service that allowed the teams to return to TRR HQ promptly for music and drinks afterwards.

As can be seen, it takes a lot of organising and an army of workers (many of whom do so on a voluntary basis) to run a successful international fundraiser such as this that brings much needed revenue into the club. We are very grateful for the work and generosity of those mentioned above, and to the others who helped in the background and whose names might have inadvertently been left out of this report.
