FOOTBALL SKILLS

There are many different skills involved in the game of  Ladies Gaelic Football.  The skills can be broadly broken down into those that involve Gaining Possession, Maintaining Possession, Releasing Possession and Contesting Possession.

Many of these skills can be performed on the ground, without the need to get the ball into the hand and out of the hand.

It is essential that all players are coached the key skills of Ladies Gaelic Football using the key coaching points for each and the Head, Hands, Feet Principle.

The Lidl Gaelic4Mothers&Others initiative is an innovative way to introduce mothers and other women to playing Ladies Gaelic Football. Mothers often drop their kids to training and call back to collect them, but the Ladies Gaelic Football Association wants to change that.

G4G is a 12 week programme incorporating coaching sessions with fun non-competitive blitzes aimed at increasing participation in Ladies Gaelic Football. The programme targets girls aged between 8-12 years who are not currently registered with a Ladies Gaelic Football club. In essence, this is a tool to attract new players.
