Activate GAA warm up
Activate is a GAA specific warm-up for training and matches that improves movement skills and reduces injury. It is a dynamic warm up which includes the ball.
Activate has been developed by Sports Institute Northern Ireland (SINI) and Ulster GAA for use by coaches of players from 14 years to senior grade.  It is suitable for use by Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie squads.
The warm up is based on solid medical research and, if performed regularly with proper technique, can reduce non-contact leg injuries by up to 50%.
The Activate GAA Warm-Up has three phases which should be performed twice a week before training. Initially, coaching Activate properly requires 30 minutes but it can be completed in 20 minutes when refined.
