Cúl Camps Football Guide

Cúl Camps are a participation and skill development initiative associated with the Fun Do phase of the Pathway
to Elite Performance (PEP).

The Fun Do Phase of the Pathway emphasises the development of the skills of the game in a positive playing
environment and, providing children with the opportunity to derive maximum enjoyment from their involvement
in Gaelic Games. Opportunities for participation that are appropriate to the needs and abilities of children are
central in the battle to provide alternatives to the passive and sedentary lifestyles which are increasingly taking
root in modern society.

It is important that all coaches of children buy into this child-centred approach. By doing so, they will enable all
young participants to experience the sense of achievement and fair play which are critical to this first stage of
development. This, in turn, will enable and encourage young players to progress through the other stages as set
out in the Pathway to Elite Performance.

This booklet has been designed to help Cúl Camp Coaches deliver an exciting and varied programme of activities
for boys and girls in accordance with Best Practice in a fun environment for all participants.
