#GAAyouth Forum - Back for 2019!

The #GAAyouth Forum 2019 will take place on Saturday 26th October in Croke Park!

The application process is open from Friday 4th October to Sunday 13th October.

This year's Forum is organised by the GAA YouthReps and run in partnership with Sky Sports. It is FREE and will be fun and informative with a mix of interactive exhibitions, workshops, a youth congress, high profile speakers and a Q&A session.

With workshops designed for three specific age groups (12/13; 14/15; 16 - 21 years), players will have the chance to learn invaluable tips and tools that will help them to develop as a player and as a person.

We have a number of activities confirmed for the Forum so far:

  • The Exhibition Zone will return for 2019 with interactive demos and stalls for all - don't forget to drop by the selfie stand for a pic with Sam and Liam as well as pick up your goodie bag!
  • Behind the Scenes Tours will be held with selected age groups and players will have a chance to see the Stadium like never before;
  • Workshops and Talks will take place throughout the day on a range of issues that effect young players;
  • A Youth Congress will be held with the oldest age group to discuss and debate matters of importance in Gaelic games today;
  • The Q&A Panel will take the hot seat at the end of the day - stay posted to see who we have lined up to answer your questions;
  • Lunch Hub - keep the energy levels high and enjoy the best grub Croker has to offer... all for free!

Registration is from 9.30am, the Forum commences at 11am and concludes at 4.30pm.
