Led by Cork’s Eoin Cadogan, the Chill Insurance Elite Performance Programme is visiting 6 clubs across the summer to pass on the skills and the knowledge to train and win like champions.

Expert GAA Advice

The Chill Insurance Elite Performance Programme is a great opportunity for clubs in Cork to receive expert training, nutritional and fitness advice. Over the coming weeks, Cork’s Eoin Cadogan will be visiting clubs with a team of specialists in nutrition and physio. The day starts off with Eamon O’Reilly (Dublin Senior Hurling Team Physio) sharing his knowledge and expertise on the best ways to remain injury free and to recover quickly from strains and injuries.

Cork GAA Performance Nutritionist Arthur Dunne Nutritional is sharing his advice on the correct balance of carbs, protein and fat to consume during training and match days. There will also be an opportunity for members to prepare some healthy snacks and shakes! Eoin covers strength and conditioning in his session demonstrating the best exercises and warm ups in order to reach optimal performance.

Sarsfields Camogie Club took part in the first Chill Insurance Elite Performance Programme on Saturday, 27 August. Over 30 members took part in the day which involved training tips on the pitch. Eoin Cadogan was joined on the day with his brother Alan and fellow Cork player Patrick Cronin.
