Here’s a little bit about us!
The Green Ball Company is an Irish company which currently focuses on the design and creation of a specialized training football for Gaelic football, Ireland’s most popular sport. Our product is called the Green Ball, a football that has the same dimensions as a regular size 5 football, but is heavier and still plays as a normal ball. Its primary use is as a training aid to facilitate players in their game-related practice using a ball as they normally would, but with a tailored resistance because of the weight. The Green Ball enables players to apply additional load to the skills they practice when training, e.g. kick-outs, kick passing, shooting, hand passing and catching. The principle of training overload in the skills domain enables the player to train every aspect of the skill concurrently- the physical, physiological, neural and biomechanical variables of a skill can all be practised with resistance in game-specific scenarios. The Green Ball is an innovative product for Gaelic Football training and performance.
