The GAA Get Ready to Play Programme is a Coaching and Sport Science programme in Association with UPMC Healthcare that will be delivered via webinars, website programmes, instructional videos and live sessions. This is a holistic programme supporting players and coaches during their return to training post Covid and in the build up to playing games again. We aim to educate coaches and players by providing an evidence informed programme. This will hopefully result in increased enjoyment, performance, participation and a reduction in the risk of injury.
The programme will be designed, approved and delivered by GAA full time coaches, Guest Coaches and the Gaelic Games Sport Science Working Group and in conjunction with delivery partner Setanta College.
The Programme will include –
- Athletic Development Programmes updated fortnightly through the GAA website (Instructional Video & Live Sessions)

- Monthly Sport Science support webinars (Every Sports Science Discipline covered)
Areas covered in the webinars will include – Coaching, Athletic Development, Psychology and Wellbeing, Nutrition, Performance Analysis, Skill Acquisition & Biomechanics, Physiotherapy and Injury Prevention.
We want as many Gaelic Games Coaches and players to sign up as possible . There will be something for everyone. The programmes are aimed at the Youth, Adult and the Advanced Adult (Male & Female).
