What are GO Games

What are GAA Go Games?
GAA Go Games are small-sided games with modified rules in both Hurling (Go Hurling) and Gaelic Football (Go Gaelic) called First Touch (under 8), Quick Touch (under 10) and Smart Touch (under 12).

Checklist for GAA Go Games
 To constitute a Go Game all of the following must be present:
 There is full participation for all players
 Games are small sided
 Playing rules are modified to suit the developmental stages of the children
 Playing area is modified
 Playing equipment is modified where necessary
 Games are organised in a non-competitive way, i.e. no league tables

Benefits of Small-Sided Games
Experience and research has shown that small-sided games have a number of benefits from both a participation and player development perspective. This is supported by a significant amount of international research conducted in different countries in different sports where small-sided games are prevalent. This research overwhelmingly highlights the following benefits:
 Everyone gets to play for the full game
 Games are played in a fun environment with emphasis on improving skills
 Participants are not subject to the "win at all costs" approach
 More touches of the ball for all players throughout all areas of the pitch
 Player get more shots at goal
 Increased opportunities to develop decision making with more 1 v 1 situations
 The ball is in play for longer
 Players work harder therefore improving fitness
 Less perceived stress on players
 Less perceived pressure from coaches and parents
 The emphasis is on player development rather than winning or losing
 Children have more perceived competence leading to increased self esteem and player retention

GAA Go Games Playing Rules

Go Games Playing Rules are not set in stone. A list of recommended rules have been circulated to all counties so that they can select a county-wide approach to playing rules.

Why Change to GAA Go Games?

Go Games make Gaelic games a more enjoyable experience for children, leading to increased self esteem. They get more touches of the ball, more opportunities to make decisions, more scoring opportunities. Players will be more active due to playing both attacking and defensive roles and will understand the importance of team play. Most importantly children will enjoy Gaelic games ensuring that they "Play and Stay" with the GAA.

What's changing?

From 2010 Go Games policy has been adopted up to and including 12 years of age. This means that all children will get meaningful playing time to develop the skills of our games in a challenging and fun environment.

"Fun at all Costs"

The philosophy of of fun, fair play and participation for all is central to the ethos of GAA Go Games. To further promote this philosophy, the GAA Respect Initiative promotes positive behaviour and ensures that an enriching environment is provided for the promotion and development of Gaelic games on and around the field of play.

A checklist for behaviour:
 Responsible
 Encouraging
 Supportive
 Positive
 Enabling
 Considerate
 Tolerant

Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator

1.
The traditional way of introducing children to hurling seemed to me to be very
unproductive. It isn’t that the ground hurling isn’t important but it’s too
demanding for the young child. The coach and the player experience failure
way too early. We know now that we must build from success and so this new
programme evolved based on the work done by Terence McWilliams with his
fundamental movement skills for young children. We have added the hurley
and replaced the ball with a much more compliant bean bag.
2.
Everywhere I go coaches ask me how they can change players who have their
weak hand on top. The “sword-grip” and the “glove hurley” are very helpful
and give a degree of success. But why should so much time and energy be spent
on remedial work? As a result of wide consultation it is clear now that the
length and weight of the hurley lies at the heart of the problem.
3.
In single-handed sports like tennis everyone uses the dominant hand (90% right,
10% left) to gain full control of the racket and execute their best shots.
4.
In this programme we start with one-handed grip: dominant hand (writing
hand) grips hurley well down the handle until child has total control (using
thumb). This feeling of control is our first feeling about the game and t must be
successful. By holding the hurley in the dominant hand we are confident that
this will become the permanent grip
5.
Wiggle the hurley up and down quickly with an almost straight arm (use other
arm for balance). Coach checks every child for correct grip and direction of bas
(turned out).
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 4
6.
There are ten lines of five markers, 1m apart.
You will need markers in 5 colours in every line. Do not have same colour
beside eachother in adjoining lines.
Three children is the ideal number in a line. Two is ok but might be too
demanding. You will need at least 10 beanbags. The tetra shhaped bag is the
most suitable for small children (1st & 2nd class)
7.
Running up and down the road wiggling hurley
Coach demonstrates.
On the whistle first person in every line runs down middle of the road (between
cones) wiggling the hurley.
Coach observes without stopping activity gives feedback (positive), corrects
grip.
Children want to race, promise them races later, now we want control of the
hurley.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 5
8.
When children have mastered middle of the road we move to weaving in and
out through lines of cones.
9.
Children now line up behind cones
Coach demonstrates weaving run while wiggling the hurley all the time.
Check: some children may be holding hurley too tightly and experience cramp
in the hand a firm gentle grip is best
10.
When they have gained mastery of that, it’s time to introduce the ‘Bean Bag’.
Coach demonstrates middle of the road run with bean bag
Key teaching point: if the bag falls to the ground the child collects it with the
free hand or ball hand (the hurley hand stays)
11.
Don’t worry if bean bags fall off early this is natural and picking bag off ground
with free hand is a skill in itself. Don’t see this as failure.
Golden Rule:
Dominant hand = hurley hand
Other hand = Catching hand
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 6
12.
Catching
As in point 10) children run down the middle of the road but at the end of the
road they flick the bag up in the air and jump to catch. They then run back and
give bag to partner.
Coach Demonstrates
Initially all we want is the confidence to have a go,
Key teaching points
“Eagles Claw” hand shape
It’s the aggressive down catch rather than passive up catch.
As children improve encourage them to jump off one foot and leave the ground
altogether (this takes time)
As with every routine coach’s judgement of how long to spend is vital
Too long leads to boredom
Too short no skill gain
Rough guide 10 chances for each child.
13.
Weave run with bean bag
Coach demonstrates
Coach is looking for a nice smooth run, nice balance easy control. Arm almost
straight
For some children the arm bends and the hurley comes up near the face
leading to an awkward running style.
Key here is to relax drop down hand and hurley and run freely.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 7
14.
Forward Circle on 3rd cone
[As in 13] Coach demonstrates
When player comes to the 3rd cone she must do a full circle facing forward all
the time before continuing her weaving run
Bag may fall off.
Key skills: acceleration, deceleration, complex footwork.
15.
One leg hopping in the middle of the road
Out on one leg
Return on the other.
16a.
Side Skipping
Coach Demonstrates
Children face coach who stands at one side of play area holding a hurley over
his head. Children are encouraged to watch the coach's hurley and still be
aware of the beanbag while skipping sideways down the middle of the road and
back again.
16b.
Catching
Flicking the bag into the catching hand while moving can be added to almost
any exercise when you feel the children are ready. this adds to the excitement
and enjoyment.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 8
17.
ZigZag
Coach Demonstrates
Place left foot at cone on left side of the “road”
Zig to right, Zag to left etc.
When they begin to glide over the ground you’ll know they have the skill.
Coach may have to demonstrate again for some children.
For the return cross to the other side and work the opposite cones
18.
Racing Cars
Full speed racing (bag on hurley)
Middle of the Road
Out to 3 stop reverse to 2
Out to 4 stop reverse to 3
Out to 5 race home
Key Skill: stopping, reversing, full speed.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 9
19.
Rest Exercises
It will not be possible for the children to keep moving all the time so when
appropriate (every 10-15mins) coach should introduce some less strenuous
exercises.
A.
Children work in pairs standing 2-3m apart facing each other eg.
Child places bag on hurley and flicks (silent) to her partner who catches it
(down catch) places it on her hurley and flicks it back.
B.
Flick bag into the air and “catch” it on the hurley.(10 each).
C.
Flick bag over your head spin around and “catch” it on the hurley (10 each).
20.
Swallows
Swallows is a game that tests all the skills we have practised so far.
Swallows is a high risk game and the rules must be clear.
The swallow is one of the most agile birds of the air able to fly at tremendous
speed, twisting and turning, darting through narrow openings to feed the young
and catching flies on the wing.
Their judgement is brilliant. Even at the highest speed they never collide.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 1
The swallow is an ideal hurling model.
The cones come in 5 colours so there will be five colours in every line. If we
place the cones so that a given colour is in a different place in every line it will
allow us to play swallows.
e.g. Mary is in front of the yellow cone so on the whistle Mary solos to every
yellow cone on the floor until whistle sounds again. She then returns to her
“nest”.
Progressions:
(a) Count the number of cones she passed e.g. 7
(b) Flick the ball from hurley to hand as she passes her colour:
Count how many “flies” she has going back to her nest.
Paudie Butler – National Hurling Coordinator 1
