What will the outcome be in Sunday's GAA Football All-Ireland Championship Final?

The Grassroots To National Programme


The Association, as a key service provider, is committed to maintaining a vibrant contribution to lifelong involvement in sport and physical activity through the implementation of the GAA Grassroots to National Programme (GNP). This will also serve as a basis to maximise involvement in Gaelic Games and optimise playing standards.

This programme is underpinned by the principles of fair play, an understanding of the inevitability of success and failure, and a recognition that increased effort and incremental improvement are required if players are to achieve their full potential. It will also focus increased attention on:

  • Providing attractive alternatives to sedentary lifestyles
  • Supplementing the work of voluntary officials
  • Increasing involvement in urban and/or non-traditional playing areas
  • Providing a blueprint for sports development in an international context – the constructs which underpin this programme can be applied on a universal basis.

OTú Games Development Model

The OTú Games Development Model provides a framework for ensuring that the principles which underpin the GNP are delivered on an integrated basis and in a holistic manner. The following core elements give practical expression to this:

  1. Pathway to Elite Performance (PEP)
  2. Skill Through Effort Project (STEP) and
  3. Coach, Administrator, Referee Education (CARE) with provision for Applied Lifelong Learning (ALL)
