The Ulster GAA Coaching and Games Technical Skills Webinar Programme is now open for registration.

Beginning at the end of this month and running through to next March, the programme is a series of six online webinars that will look at the key skills of Gaelic Football.

Each webinar will dissect specific football skills into the key coaching points and look at best practice in breaking down and building technical proficiency in underage players.

The programme is particularly focused on Coaches operating at underage club level, but may also be of interest to adult club coaches.

Why we are delivering this…

Technical proficiency is the bedrock for players, whose first touch and skill level will enable them the time to make better decisions in the heat of battle. As such, the standard of our games is improved.
