GAA Club Health and Wellbeing Officer Training in Bush Hotel on Friday

Training for GAA Club Health and Wellbeing Officers will take place in The Bush Hotel on Friday with registration at 7.45pm, and the session concluding at 10pm sharp.

Each club is encouraged to send two representatives to avail of this training, the first of its kind to take place in Leitrim. (The training is currently being rolled out across the country.) If your club hasn’t yet appointed a health and wellbeing officer, anyone interested in the role is welcome to attend.

The training will be delivered by Derek Kelleher, who was trained as a health and wellbeing tutor in Croke Park in January, and Colin Regan, GAA Community and Health Manager. It touches on a range of topics, including:

  • What health and wellbeing is, and how to maintain it
  • How sport and being a GAA member helps
  • The role of the Club Health and Wellbeing Officer
  • The Four Building Blocks of a Healthy Club
  • How this work can benefit clubs, players, members, and communities
  • How to respond to critical incidents

The training is interactive and engaging and each delegate will receive a participant workbook and a certificate while each club represented will receive a Healthy Club manual to help guide them.

Representatives from other sporting clubs/codes are also welcome to send a representative. Please email to confirm who from your club will attend.
