The GAA Healthy Club Project aims to help CLG Éire Óg Inis to explore how we can support the holistic health of our members and the communities we serve.
The project aims to help CLG Éire Óg Inis:
· identify what we are already doing well,
· identify areas where we can or would like to improve
· empower us to ensure that everyone who engages with our club benefits from the experience in a health-enhancing way be they players, officers, coaches, parents, supporters, or members of our local community.
The healthy club project is based on best national and international practice, to embed a healthy philosophy in our club while integrating health into the day-to-day club activities in a sustainable way. It also aims to place CLG Éire Óg Inis at the heart of the community, making it a beacon for health in the locale.
