Clubs across Ireland are encouraged to apply for the GAA Healthy Club Project.
GAA and Camogie clubs already contribute greatly to the health and wellbeing of their members by providing opportunities to develop their physical, social, emotional, and psychological health.
This programme aims to assist clubs in this important work, help them identify areas where they would like to improve, and empower them to ensure that everyone who engages with their club benefits from the experience in a health-enhancing way.
The Community & Health team in Croke Park is looking to recruit at least one club from each county to join the 16 clubs that participated in Phase 1 (which ran from 2013 to 2015 pictured above). Expressions of interest forms and full application details are available at:
The deadline for applications is Friday, January 29, 2016.
Clubs that have previously taken part in this initiative reported increased membership, better member engagement with club activities, improvements in health promoting activities, strengthened links with the local community, and opening up new funding avenues.
