This process usually takes place over an 18 month period but there is room for flexibility depending on club resources and capacity. Clubs must document their progress on the online Healthy Clubs Portal and when verified, they will gain recognition as a Foundation Level Healthy Club.

Each step is described in more detail during Healthy Club Officer Training which is delivered online throughout the year by the GAA Community & Heath department. 

Foundation level Healthy Clubs can subsequently strive for a Silver or Gold Healthy Club Award, if they have the desire and capacity to do so (details of the Silver and Gold Criteria will be shared in due course). All clubs must meet Foundation level requirements first.
