Introducing the All-New Croke Park Secondary School Experiences.


What’s New? Everything!



THE TY TIME OUT

Time to get out of the classroom and into the stadium!
This action-packed experience has been designed especially for TY teens and it’s centred around four key themes:

1. TY Tour

This gives your curious crew a few Croke Park highlights, including:

  • A screening of our ‘September Days’ film to introduce this world-class stadium.
  • A whistle-stop tour of Croke Park which includes a visit to the dressing rooms, walking pitchside through the players’ tunnel and taking a seat in our VIP section.
  • The dressing room visit will pump up motivation levels with a special ‘Get in the Zone’ video message from a GAA legend.

2. TY Recipes for Success

We are what we eat and it’s important to respect our bodies if we expect to get the best from them. The goal of this part of the tour is to feed our TY minds with sound advice for self-care. It includes:

  • An introduction to healthy eating for both physical and academic performance, put together by the GAA’s Community and Health team.
  • Practical advice to support healthy eating not just for sport, but for the game of life.
  • You can keep up the food goals with our 'Recipes for Success' book, which is free to take away for all TY teachers.

The Recipes for Success Programme has been developed by the GAA and the Home Economics Department at St. Angela’s College Sligo and the ATHEA (Association of Teachers for Home Economics).

3. TY Trials

Students work in relay teams to complete a physical challenge. To increase the stakes, there’s a mini Sam or Liam to be won!

4. TY Hashtag Heroes


Time for some TY creativity! Students are asked to put together all the information they’ve learned about exercise and nutrition and come up with a hashtag that encourages a healthy lifestyle.

They’ll work in teams, keeping in mind that health includes physical, social and emotional wellbeing. The class will then vote on the best hashtag and a class photo showing off the winning hashtag will be shared on Croke Park social media. #famous!

€10 per student (minimum 15 students)
