Down GAA are rolling out a new and innovative webinar series aimed at highlighting how clubs can best introduce and implement sustainable Long Term Athlete Development Practices.

This series of webinars will focus specifically on the various developmental stages included in the NEW GAA Player Development Framework and how this can be applied effectively in a club setting.

We will aim answer they key questions of HOW, WHY and WHAT to coach at each age group in your club from a TECHNICAL, TACTICAL & ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT perspective. It is our plan to leave clubs with physical tools that can aid their coaches in developing players and monitoring their players' age-specific progress.
