About Jim Madden GPA Leadership
The Jim Madden GPA Leadership Programme develops a group of county players from Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic football with the necessary skills, motivation and experience to become real leaders in the community.
Many of our Gaelic athletes have exceptional leadership qualities. These skills are honed through the experience and resilience developed as elite players in a highly competitive environment, where high performance is often predicated on the player’s own ability to lead by example encouraging greater levels of performance from team-mates.
The Jim Madden GPA Leadership Programme establishes a learning pathway for both male and female players who wish to develop these qualities which can be harnessed both for their personal development and for the benefit of the community.
This programme is made possible thanks to the support of Michael Madden and his family who have dedicated the curriculum to the memory of their late father Jim who was a tireless grassroots GAA and community activist in Tipperary.
