GAA Solo Challenge

Well done to all who took part in the #GAASolo Challenge last week, we are delighted that the school came 2nd overall and won prizes of sports equipment for the school. Congratulations to Dylan Walsh who won an individual prize as well. Many thanks to Ms Dugdale for organising and promoting this initiative and to all the staff and students who have taken the time to record their activities so far.

It would be great to see more getting involved in the #GAASolo Challenge this week.
The Week 3 Challenges are listed here. Have a look at our Instagram page to see some of the challenges that have already been attempted (@sncfutureleaders). This week’s challenges are a great opportunity for you all to show off the excellent GAA skills that you have. This week also focuses on home workouts and dances you may be using to stay active so get thinking!!

*Note* The video will be shared on the Instagram page and by submitting a video you are consenting to this. Please only send a video if you are happy for it to be shared.

The school that won last week had a lot more videos than us so we really need to see a big effort from each year group to get involved in this. You can win some great individual prizes (O’neills halfzips, O’Neills footballs for example.) The school with the most videos will win the overall prize of GAA equipment for the school so we need as many videos as we can get. We are doing really well so far this week but with three days left we need everyone to get involved. Closing date for entries is 5pm on Saturday. You can work individually, with a family member or get creative and combine videos with friends.

Weekly Challenges:
You can do any or all of these as many times as you want! We will have different challenges each week;

Week 3:
a) Freestyle Hurling & Gaelic Football Challenge – We want to see all your skills, flicks and trick shots. Be as creative as possible!

b) Coaching Challenge – Pick a hurling, camogie, Gaelic football or LGFA skill. Make an instructional coaching video, breaking down the skill and showing the key teaching points. Use text on your video to help. You can also coach the key points of that skill to your family members to aid your demonstration if you wish. Check out the GAA Planner on for ideas. A good activity for any aspiring Cúl Camps coaches out there!

c) Wellbeing Challenge – It’s very imortant to keep active while at home, so we are challenging you to send us videos of the home workouts or dance routines you are using to keep fit.

d) Operation Transformation Challenge – To find out what our final challenge is this week, tune into RTE’s Operation Transformation on Wednesday night to find out what we have in store for the contestants and everyone at home.

Thanking you all in advance and we are looking forward to seeing what some of you come up with.
