NOW BOOKING! GAA Fun & Run Camps 2018

Waterford Sports Partnership is collaborating with Waterford Coaching and Games and is piloting two GAA Fun & Run Sessions for participants with a mild to moderate intellectual disability aged 14-18 years in two locations this summer.

Back in March, our Sports Inclusion Disability Officer (Pauline Cunningham) and Waterford Coaching and Games Development Officer (Eoin Breathnach) attended the first GAA Inclusion Training Day which focused primarily on the new GAA Fun & Run Programme.  Fun and Run is an activity  involving a team of batters/kickers and fielders which is suitable for all ages and ability levels. It is particularly suited to meet the needs of people with disabilities, people from socially deprived and ethnic minority groups who often perceive themselves to be excluded from mainstream GAA activities.

It aims to provide people with a strong sense of Irish culture and heritage through a purposeful activity that will enable them to grow and maintain optimum participation across the full diversity of Irish community life.

Details of the camps are as follows...

Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd August
St. Saviour’s GAA Club  | 3 - 4.30pm

Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th August
Lismore GAA Club | 3 - 4.30pm

If you would like more information on Fun and Run or would like to take part please contact Pauline Cunningham on 076 110 2682
