Experience Gaelic Games offers a tailor-made cultural experience designed to promote team dynamics for groups of 10 to 300 people.

The program employs the skills of Gaelic Games and a number of other activities to promote –

  • Team-building
  • Competitiveness
  • Leadership
  • Initiative
  • Personal rapport among work colleagues

Your employees’ day will involve basic training and participation in traditional Gaelic games including Hurling and Gaelic Football. Depending on your specific needs, the day can be built around a more dynamic corporate team enhancing session that would include a strong competitive and performance-driven element such as a ‘Poc Fada’ challenge, the ‘Design a Jersey’ competition, which encourages creativity or the ‘Pass the Sliothar’ which is centred around teamwork and concentration. There is a broad range of these activities available from which you can choose, depending on your preferences. Alternatively, along with learning Gaelic Games skills, your team-building experience can incorporate a lighter element such as an Irish Dance session, which also requires a lot of teamwork but is enormous fun! Whatever your specific corporate needs we can build a program to suit your company and you and your employees will have a day they’ll remember – and one they’ll thank you for.

How does this Programme Work?

Our Games Program starts with a training briefing that gently eases the participants into the action. There is a short introduction to Gaelic Games that incorporates video footage and a general discussion about the sports the individual group members play, if any. We then move outside (or indoors if needed) and everybody is given a lesson in the basic skills of Gaelic Football and Hurling. Each group of ten has a dedicated trainer who will teach the basics of the sport and either arrange mini matches or one of a number of other team-building activities, such as “Clothes Peg” “Balloon Ball” etc. At each step along the way our expert coaches provide guidance for the players with their own friendly and individual styles. Our trainers are excellent with people, are passionate about what they do and will take time and effort with every participant.

The sessions are designed to be non-contact, so you don’t have to worry about employees nursing bruises! We are fully licensed and insured for all activities. Tea, coffee and water are available throughout the session and no hurleys, helmets, football or special clothing is required – everything you need is supplied by us. All you need to bring along are a pair of flat-soled shoes and an enthusiasm for a positive and highly entertaining day’s team-building.

What will the session involve / How long will it be?

For the most part, we try to run our sessions outdoors.  However we also have a full range of indoor equipment and factilities.  Most of our groups utilise all weather surfaces, so groups do not need to worry about getting dirty!  At our facilities there are showers available, guests do need to bring their own towels.  Tea/coffee/water available at our location.  Sessions usually run for either 2 hours or 3 hours depending on the group and time available.

Costs Of the Corporate Programme:
