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.
