Topic: Returning to Gaelic games post-Covid – Keeping your squad fit and preventing injury

This webinar will look at the issues facing GAA athletes in the current Covid-19 situation and how to address them. We look at the return to play post-Covid, and ways we can mitigate for time out of play.   We will look at specific ways of tailoring training to avoid injuries both in the ’small group scenarios’ and also in the main group training when players return. We will discuss injury prevention and recovery strategies to use with your players during a condensed playing calendar.
Presenter: Eamon O’Reilly

Eamon is a chartered physiotherapist and clinic lead of SPARC South Dublin. He has worked with a number of intercounty teams in both football and hurling. He has worked with the Dublin hurlers since 2011. He has worked as a physiotherapist for the Irish International Rules team on 3 different series. He has also been involved in physiotherapy services for the Irish high-performance boxing teams. Eamon is also a currently serving member on the national GAA’s medical, scientific, and welfare committee. He also served on the sports science expert group for the GAA.  His main clinical area of expertise involves complex chronic athletic injuries around the hip including recurrent hamstring issues, abdominal and hip/groin issues.

Nursery Hurling: Values and Guidelines

This workshop will be presented by Damien Coleman, Connacht Hurling Development Manager. It will give to those in attendance an insight into “Best Practice” for coaching and developing our youngest and most vulnerable players.  It will explain the values and guidelines that have been meticulously developed over many years by the GAA’s Coaching & Games Department.

90% of the workshop is highly relevant to coaches of all sports and all ages as it is value based and values transcend all sports and all age grades. Those currently involved with young players will obviously find it beneficial, but it would also be an excellent starting point for those considering getting involved in coaching whether they are current players or people that have never lifted a hurl.

This is a good opportunity to recruit some new coaches for your club so maybe pick up the phone and ask some “potentials” to register. It will set them up nicely for maybe taking their first steps into coaching by signing on for one of the GAA’s excellent foundation courses held in every county.
