Elphin GAA Lights Up January 2019

Elphin GAA Update January 20th

Healthy Club Workshops

As part of our Healthy Club 2020 initiative, Elphin GAA is holding 2 workshops on Saturday January 25th. The workshops are open to everyone connected with the club and will focus on bringing all areas of the club together to discuss how we can build a more cohesive club that plays a positive part in the life’s of its’ members and of the wider community. The ultimate goal is to foster a positive club dynamic so that our club can be as successful & enjoyable as possible.

The workshops will take place in the Day Care Centre and will be facilitated by Dr Maria Garvey, a professor from Trinity College Dublin who has worked with many groups, large and small, over the years. The morning workshop will focus on the minor club (minor board, coaches, players, parents & supporters) and run from 12noon to 2pm. The afternoon workshop will focus on the adult club (players, coaches, the club executive, club members, supporters, sponsors and the wider community) and run from 4pm to 6pm.

This is an extremely important initiative for the club and we look forward to a big turnout for both workshops.

Do you want to get moving and active this New Year, but you have nowhere to go?
Do you find it hard to find a safe and well-lit area to go a walk during the dark winter months? Well, your local GAA Club has the answer! We’re coming on board with the Operation Transformation and the GAA for Ireland Lights Up. Every Thursday from the 9th January to 26th February The Orchard will be open and lit up for you, your family and friends to come and walk from 7.15pm to 8.30pm. Sign in is required in the old dressing room first and we will all walk, run or waddle together at 7.30pm. We want everyone to come and join for Ireland Lights Up 2020! All are welcome to come to this event.
