Leinster GAA has developed 2 skills tests for U13/6th Class Children for both Hurling and Football. The skills tests are designed to challenge each players ability to strike/kick accurately and consistantly off both sides.
The tests are devided into Individual tests and team tests
The individual tests can be take in two formats:
1) League - The league format is a best of 10 structure where by the player takes 10 attempts (5 off each side) and calculates their total score
2) Championship - The championship format is knock-out, each player continues the test until they miss.

The team tests are a great way of setting you players a challenge where they have to work as part of a team. The two tests are different in that one test is a competition between two teams while the other test is a against the clock whereby all players are working together to beat a target set by them, their coach or another team of players
