Gaelic Games survey of 13-19 year olds

The three Gaelic Games Associations, GAA, LGFA, and Camogie Association, are conducting a survey of young players in Gaelic Games designed to better understand the experiences of players in the 13-19 age cohort across all codes.

The survey will cover topics such as the teams they play for, how often they take part, the coaching environment they experience, and their future in Gaelic Games.

This is the first time that all the Gaelic games Associations have collaborated on such a project for players.

According to the GAA’s Strategy, Insights, and Innovation Manager, Dr. Peter Horgan, the survey will capture both the positives and challenges experienced by young people who play Gaelic Games.

Dr. Aoife Lane, Chairperson of the Gaelic Games Sports Science Working Group and Head of the Department of Sport and Health Sciences in TUS Midlands Midwest, believes great insight can be gleaned from the survey.

The survey can be completed online through any phone, laptop, or tablet and only takes ten minutes to complete. Players who complete the survey can win one of four prizes of coaching visits and equipment for their club. One club from each Province will win a coaching visit from one of our coaching ambassadors and playing equipment worth €250.

If you’re a youth member aged from 18 to 19 or you’re a parent of a child aged from 13 to 19 you can complete the survey at this link-

This project is part funded Sport Ireland and Healthy Ireland and the advisory group overseeing the development of the study contains the following representatives of the various GAA codes as well as partners in 3rd level institutions from across Ireland: Dr Peter Horgan (GAA), Kevin Donoghue (GAA & Syracuse University, USA), William Harmon (LGFA), Aideen Howlin (Camogie Association), Dr Aoife Lane (TU Shannon), Niamh Fogarty (TU Shannon), Dr Wesley O’Brien (UCC), Dr Paul Donnelly (Ulster University), Dr Margaret Lawler (Trinity College, Dublin)
