More playing time for youth and social adult athletes should be introduced.
That's the view of a Fine Gael senator who's calling for the measure - known as the 'half game rule'.
If introduced, it would mean players couldn't be left on the sidelines for full games.
Neale Richmond believes keeping people involved in an active and social environment throughout their teens and into adulthood is of great value.
He says, "it's to look at maintaining high levels of participation. We see an awful lot of drop off in people playing team sports when they hit eighteen.
"If they knew that after training that they would be guaranteed half a game, it would be so much easier to keep people involved."
The GAA are just one of the organisations here who already have a similar rule for children, however the senator believes this should now be extended to older age groups.
"Underage gets a lot of focus and that's very important but it's also important for adult and social players.
"The person who's playing Junior B hurling needs to know that it's worth their while, that they know they don't just need to go to the gym, that they can stay involved in team sports and meet with friends in a good healthy environment."
