Go Games Skill Challenges

 

The GAA Go Games Skill Challenges aim to encourage children (aged 7-12 years) to improve their hurling/camogie and Gaelic football skills.

It is intended that children will be intrinsically motivated to challenge themselves to improve their skills, with a particular emphasis on bilateral coordination. Children gauge their own progress, such as setting distances and recording their own scores.

The challenges can be taken either indididually or with a partner almost anywhere (at home, the club, school etc.). The challenges provide a good opportunity for coaches, teachers and parents/guardians to collaborate efforts to improve the children's Gaelic games skills. 

This initiative is one of the activities of the GAA’s 5 Star Centre Initiative

Check out the following videos to see  inter-county stars taking the challenges.
