As elite athletes, you give everything to the game. It’s an amazing game, and it should be a big part of the picture of your life. But it shouldn’t be the full picture.

The BEO 360 programme has been developed specifically for GPA members, to empower inter-county players to realise the bigger picture beyond your sport. To fulfil your potential. To provide you with options. To give you every chance on and off the field.

Having a better plan for your off-field career provides better opportunities for greater on-field performance.

Hear how your fellow members have benefitted from GPA support.

BEO 360 is a programme developed specifically for you, aimed at supporting your personal development. We work with you across four key programme pillars, tailored for you and your unique circumstances.

Providing opportunities and resources to broaden your perspective and expand your identity beyond your sporting career.

Empowering you to achieve your potential in your off-field career.

Protecting and promoting your holistic wellbeing through practical tools and strategies.

Guiding you to adapt and adjust to change at each phase of your inter-county career journey.
