Off the Booze and On the Ball

Off the Booze and On the Ball

It’s that time of the year again – when the GAA challenges its members and the public to stay 'Off the Booze & On the Ball' and abstain from alcohol for four weeks to give their New Year a healthy kick-start.

Driven by the GAA's ASAP programme, 'The Challenge’ offers participants the opportunity to press pause following the hectic social calendar of the holiday season. For some clubs, The Challenge is also used as an opportunity to fundraise in a fun and healthy way – everyone who registers receives an information pack with practical tips on how to implement a healthier lifestyle as well as a sponsorship card. Try it as a team or panel – the results from a physical and financial perspective can be substantial.

This year we are delighted that nine colleges across the four provinces have backed the challenge and are promoting it amongst their wider student populations and their GAA clubs. The time of year you choose to take up The Challenge doesn't matter – all that matters is that it benefits your health in a lasting way.

We want all participants to keep us informed of their activities and experiences during The Challenge through the GAA's social media and watch out for updates and incentives offered through the GAA's Facebook and Twitter accounts.

To take up The Challenge complete the registration form below to receive your automated Information Pack and sponsorship card.

If you are registering as a club member please click on the Club tab above the registration form before completing it. If you are registering as a student please click on the University | College tab.

Information packs and posters are available to download below. Printed resources such as posters and table displays are also available to any teams registering for Off the Booze and On the Ball. To request your resource pack, please email

*Please note that you must be 18 and over to participate
