150 Clubs Commence Phase 4 of The Healthy Club Project
150 clubs commenced their journey in the GAA Healthy Club Project at the National Orientation Day for Phase 4 entrants in Croke Park on February 1st.
Delegates representing clubs from the 32 counties were present, while, for the first time ever, three international clubs are also taking part in the Healthy Club Project – Den Haag GAA Netherlands, Montreal Shamrocks GAA Canada and Al Ain GAA United Arab Emirates.
A total of 206 clubs applied to participate in Phase 4, with 150 selected following a rigorous process. Members of the Community & Health Department in Croke Park brought the delegates through the ‘Seven Step’ process involved in gaining recognition as an ‘Official Healthy Club’.
Perhaps more important were the inspirational testimonies and case studies offered by some of the 142 clubs that successfully completed Phase 1-3 of Project and can now proudly identify as official ‘Healthy Clubs’.
Phase 4 will run for 18-months with expressions of interest opening to new clubs that want to get involved in October 2021. There is lots interested clubs can do in the meantime, but the first step is to ensure that their Healthy Club Officer receives the training provided by their respective County Health & Wellbeing Committee. This provides all the guidance necessary. The Healthy Club Project is kindly supported by Irish Life, Healthy Ireland, the National Office of Suicide Prevention, the Public Health Agency, and the Tomar Trust.
As partners of the Healthy Club Project, Irish Life is offering the chance for four GAA clubs to win a €2,500 O’Neill’s voucher.
