GAA Performance Analysis Workshop

January 8th, 2019

The GAA has established a Quality Assurance Accreditation programme for performance analysts working within our games. Accreditation is based on the individual’s experience, their performance analysis competence and most importantly their ability to deliver within the context of the GAA’s values and ethos.

The aim of the programme is to support analysts volunteering their time across the country from club to county level.  The GAA intends to foster a philosophy of practice and shared learning within the GAA performance analyst community which aligns with the principles and underlying values of the Coach10 Model.

2019 Application Process 

The application process begins with attendance at one of the GAA Context Workshops and for 2019 these will be run on a provincial basis as previous years.  Leinster GAA will be hosting one such Workshop on 19th January in Portlaoise. For those interested in attending this workshop please contact colm.clear.leinster@gaa.ie
