WorkshopsChild Protection
It is imperative that all clubs create the safest possible environment for all children and young people to participate in GAA Games and Activities. Central to this is the role of the Children’s Officer and Designated Officer. It is mandatory that every club has a Children’s Officer and that they are adequately trained to fulfil the requirements of their roles. Thiscourse provides that necessary training for both roles and is an excellent source of support and advice in a very sensitive area of club life.
Health and Wellbeing Officer Training
From 1st January all clubs are required by GAA rule to appoint a Health and Wellbeing Officer. This workshop advises on what the key roles and responsibilities are for this officer and how clubs can organise themselves to address the health needs of members.
Fundraising in your Club
This course looks at how best to organise your Club to implement practical ways to generate funds. The course showcases a range of innovative fundraising methods, reflecting on case studies from Clubs who have successfully implemented the approaches. Time will also be given to exploring the role of a fundraising unit within the Club and how best to plan for most effective fundraising.
Finance, Insurance, Deeds of Trust and CASC
This course provides an overview of the legal and compliance issues that GAA Clubs must follow in terms of Financial Management/Governance, Insurance issues and land ownership with reference to the GAA Deed of Trust. The workshop will also review the Community Amateur Sport Club status and provide an overview of the financial requirements for this process.
Raising Scór and Culture within Your Club
This workshop will discuss ways in which all clubs, big and small, can increase and enhance their participation in Scór. As well as looking at the competitions, it will explore the feasibility of holding internal Scór events and giving special recognition to Scór participants within clubs.​
