    Keepy up challenge - 478x485px

    Take on the Northern Ireland Senior Women’s Keepy Up challenge from home:

    • Get in a plank position with a balloon in one hand
    • Keep your core tight & use one hand at a time to tap the balloon from side to side, lifting one hand off the ground at a time
    • See how many balloon taps you can get before you or your balloon drops to the ground!
    • Don’t forget to count! (no cheating)
    • No balloon? Improvise using another safe household object – Kitchen foil rolled into a ball, a kitchen towel being passed from side to side

      Get involved and take on the challenge using #GameChangersNI on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tag your friends to challenge them

    Define a Game Changer

    How would you define a Game changer? Electric Ireland were joined by Casey Stoney and Northern Ireland Senior Women's players Julie Nelson, Marissa Callaghan and Megan Bell to discuss their views.

    We can all be a Game Changer, both on and off the pitch.

    Shooting Stars- Game Changers

    Shooting Stars

    If you have a budding footballer at home why not let them explore their skills through the Electric Ireland Shooting Stars programme.

    Whether your little girl is only starting out or developing her skills to become a pro, we are with her every step of the way.

    With 18 centres across Northern Ireland, it’s never too early to help them on their way to becoming a game changer.

    Hopefully, we’ll be able to see some of you at a Shooting Stars session soon, in the meantime why not take the IFA Shooting Stars challenge.


    Benefits of playing Sport

    Take it from us, sport can be a Game Changer.

    Taking part in sport can help us feel fitter, healthier and mentally strong, and that is just the start of it. Sport can also be fun, especially when played as part of a team or with family or friends.
