Be Ready To Play
The Gaelic Games family have launched ‘Be Ready to Play’, a Coaching and Sport Science programme in association with UPMC, official healthcare partner of the GAA and GPA, that will be delivered via webinars, website programmes, instructional videos and live online sessions. The programme is a holistic coaching and performance plan that will be of great benefit to all club coaches and players, male, female, adult, and youth alike. It will help them return to training post-COVID-19 in a way that will hopefully increase enjoyment, performance, and participation, while simultaneously reducing the risk of injury. Full details here
