The biggest ever coaching survey conducted in Irish sport will see the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association join forces to help shape the future development of Gaelic games.
Coaches at every level of Football, Hurling/Camogie, Handball & Rounders are being encouraged and urged to make their voices heard via the online survey over the next three weeks. The Gaelic games Coach Survey 2020 is a unique opportunity for coaches to provide an insight into their role, and their needs. It is the first time that such an approach has been taken across the entire Gaelic games family.
Targeting more than 10,000 responses, it makes it one of the most comprehensive coaching studies ever undertaken. We in GAA Handball hope as many of our coaches can participate as possible.
This survey will look at all our coaches’ experience, their practice and how coaches see coaching into the future. We are also very interested in coaches’ experience of coach education, and what coaches feel are their own learning needs. Those people that have dropped out of coaching are also part of this survey, to help us understand why they are no longer coaching, and whether there is anything that we can put in place to encourage them back into coaching.
We are asking all coaches to complete the survey and to circulate this survey amongst all the coaches within your club.

Coaches who complete the survey will be offered the chance to take part in a draw, whereby four respondents will win Coaching Master Class sessions. The Coaching Master Class will involve a coaching session for the winning coaches' own team, and a coaching workshop for all of the coaches within their Club.
Thank you for your support in this. The feedback that we receive will be crucial in planning coaching and coach education programmes in the coming years.
