38 Clubs Representing 22 Counties Took Part In The Gaelic4Girls Programme In 2019

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association is delighted to announce that applications are now open for our 2020 Gaelic4Girls Programme.

2018 saw the LGFA celebrate the 10th anniversary of the scheme, with Armagh star Aimee Mackin acting as Gaelic4Girls ambassador and featuring in a series of hugely-popular promotional videos.

Aimee continued in this role for 2019, with even more clubs getting involved in this extremely successful player recruitment programme.

38 clubs representing 22 counties took part in the Gaelic4Girls programme in 2019, with over 1600 girls aged between 8-12 years involved – a huge number of players who have been exposed to Ladies Gaelic Football and a club setting for the first time.

The selected clubs will attend training evenings before the programme is rolled out.

The LGFA are now accepting applications for 2020, with a closing date of November 29th and full information is available on their website https://ladiesgaelic.ie/lgfa-hub/games-development/gaelic4girls/

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.
