The Healthy Club project will transform the health of your community. It will enhance your club, strengthen your club and the bonds within your club. It really grew our club and changed it in a positive way. It brought a whole new cohort of people to the club. It is a wonderful programme and I would encourage every club to get involved.
The Healthy Club Project has given our club a real boost. Not only are our members healthier and happier but from a club perspective we have increased our social membership. People soon realised what was available in the club and that we aren’t just concerned about the players on the pitch but also the wider community.
The Healthy Club Project has been a huge benefit to both the school and the wider Donnycarney community. It has brought about a greater awareness of being healthy in all aspects, from physical to mental to lifestyle and this has started from the very early ages in the nursery, right up through our primary schools and spread into our secondary schools, right up until adult hood.
Healthy Clubs Review 2020
Take a minute to enjoy this showcase of the work of the GAA Healthy Clubs during 2020
Health is at the heart of every club.
Clubs organically provide meaningful opportunities to socialise, play, and enjoy regular physical activity opportunities. Being part of the Healthy Clubs Project builds on this foundation and provides clubs with a framework to ensure that all aspects on their club are health- enhancing and inclusive.
