What is a Healthy Club?
The GAA Healthy Club Project have outlined the following principles that they feel underpin a healthy club:
- They recognise health and wellbeing as a core value.
- They view health as something holistic – incorporating physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing.
- They seek to make their club as healthy an environment as possible.
- They are community clubs that aim to extend their health and wellbeing influence beyond their membership.
- They are inclusive clubs.
- They work in partnership to build stronger, more connected communities.
