About Us2020-12-17T09:18:53+00:00

Spot on Sports was founded on the principle of making it easy for kids to enjoy playing Gaelic Football.

Barry Anderson

I am very passionate about coaching and in particular giving every child the best chance possible to participate and progress in sport. I have coached at all levels within my club from senior men right down to nursery. I have also worked in a coach observer role with the LGFA.

As a club coach, a club/school link coach and parent to 3 young boys I was looking for a more efficient and fun way to introduce kids to the basic skills of Gaelic football. The Spot on ball does just that. It allows ,for the first time, parents coaches and teachers teach the basic skills of our national sport in a way children learn.

Our Spot on footballs are now in use in over 100 GAA clubs and  we also offer the service of  structuring player pathway and coaching pathway plans in clubs.

If you have any questions on anything coaching or club related please get in touch

The SpotOn Football helps coaches teach and children learn.

A study was set up by SpotOn Sports in association with University College Cork to determine the efficacy of this unique football aimed at coaching young children in the basic skills of Gaelic football.

The study, carried out over a 10-week period and produced findings that  – 100% of the children found the ball fun and engaging to use.
