11 GAA clubs across Ulster to benefit from a ‘real talk’ with Alan O’Mara on mental health

Real Talks, a dynamic organisation founded by Cavan GAA’s Alan O’Mara, have partnered with the GAA Healthy Club project to launch an exciting new initiative that will promote positive mental health in 11 GAA clubs in Northern Ireland over the next six weeks.

This will be the first time a strategic and coordinated planned sequence of events of this scale and nature will take place in GAA clubs on the area of emotional wellbeing.

As part of each club’s participation in this project, they will receive a positive mental health workshop on mental health, effective communication, personal leadership and resilience. A number of these sessions are open to the general public but some will work exclusively with teams within the GAA club and challenge the ‘dressing room environment’ that is often associated with sporting teams.

Each seminar will be facilitated by Alan O’Mara, a renowned speaker for his mixture of honesty, insight, humour and passion on the topic of health and wellbeing. A senior Gaelic footballer with Cavan in recent years and an Ulster u21 champion, Alan became the first active senior inter-county player to go public about experiencing depression in 2013 and has since gone on to publish a best-selling memoir, ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’.

All participating clubs are currently part of the GAA’s Healthy Club project, which is supported by Irish Life, Healthy Ireland, the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Public Health Agency (PHA) in Northern Ireland. The intention of the Healthy Club project is that every GAA club will become a hub for health and wellbeing. Clubs are supported in how best to make their clubs more health-enhancing covering a variety of topics including, physical, emotional and social wellbeing.

Each club, as part of their commitment to this initiative will adopt the GAA’s Mental Health Charter.

2016 Annual Presentation Dinner.

Club chairman Joseph O’Boyle welcomed over one hundred members for a very enjoyable evening. Special guests were club president Fr. Colm McBride, South West chairman Columb Walsh with his wife Una, Frank and Kathleen Rogers.. Also present was the club’s main sponsor Martin McClinton from Hunky Dory. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Antrim intermediate football championship medals to the senior ladies team.

 

Columb Walsh congratulated the club for continuing to encourage the youth of the area to take part in club activities and to accept the ethos Gaelic games. He thanked the club for their participation in all South West competitions and the discipline shown from the players. The chairman congratulated the club on receiving the McStocker cup which is presented to club with the best discipline from managers and players. Columb congratulated the ladies for winning the Antrim intermediate championship. He also thanked our referees Paul Hanna and Christopher Eastwood for their dedication towards refereeing and encouraged others to come forward and take it up. .  

 

The chairman in his citation for the club’s hall of fame award spoke highly of the recipient Frank Rogers. Frank had moved in the early sixties from his home town of Lisnaskea County Fermanagh to teach in St.Aidan’s High School Glenavy where he taught physical education. He joined St.Joseph’s senior team and was an ever present member for the next decade. Joseph encouraged those present particularly the players to follow Frank’s example and be prepared to put something back into the club when they had retired from playing.  

 

When Frank retired from playing he continued to have a huge influence on our club with his expert knowledge of the rules and for keeping players fit he made great use of the school recreation hall for training and coaching. He also started a basketball team to keep the players fit and interested during the winter months. Frank helped several managers with the coaching and fitness of players and his influence held bring success on a number of occasions. Frank now lives with his wife Kathleen and family in Ballycastle.

 

Frank thanked the club for the award and had always kept up to date with results and what was happening in the club. He wished the club well for the future and encouraged d the young players enjoy themselves as much as he had.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++              

 Child Protection training is a compulsory requirement and we have been informed by the Ulster Council that this is an area that will be very closely monitored in all clubs this year. 

 

Coaching: I have forwarded this email to all Lead Coaches and Committee Members - could I ask that you pass this information on to all members of your coaching team and stress the importance of attending on Wednesday 2nd. If your team usually train on a Wednesday evening, I would ask you to rearrange for this one week to allow everyone the opportunity to attend this important course. 

 

Unfortunately, even if you have completed Child Protection training and Access NI checks through your own work this does not cover you within the GAA and you will need to complete the GAA specific training. Anyone who has completed the GAA Child Protection course within the last 3 years does not need to complete it again this year - however you are very welcome to attend to update your training. 

 

Finally, can I ask that you confirm your attendance at the Child Protection course with our Children's Officer - Colette Ward on 07850 957802 - a text will be fine. 

 

Thanks for all your continued help with everything and I am sure you will appreciate how important it is that we get as many people involved with our teams through this training as possible.

Player Injury Scheme 2016

Player Injury Scheme – St Joseph’s Glenavy GAC

 

The GAA mandatory scheme provides benefit to St Josephs Glenavy members playing Gaelic Games. The GAA Player Injury Scheme is NOT an insurance scheme.  It is a benefit scheme for the purpose of giving an injured player a "dig out" if they have no other recourse for their medical expenses. St Josephs Glenavy pays the premiums in respect of paid up registered members for cover during matches and official training sessions.

 

The Injury Scheme is funded entirely from Club and GAA funds.  There is no legal obligation on the GAA to provide such a Scheme.  Risk is an inherent factor in sport.  When members voluntarily take part in club activities, they accept the risks that such participation may bring.

 

The Injury Scheme does not seek to compensate fully for injury but to supplement other Schemes such as Personal Accident or Health Insurance.  The Scheme only provides cover for unrecoverable losses up to €4500. (Note a typical ACL injury can cost in excess of €6000.)

The excess on the Scheme is €100.

 

Ultimately, the responsibility to ensure that adequate cover is in place lies with the individual member.

 

 

  

 

How do I claim?

 

The claim form can be downloaded from www.gaa.ie by clicking on the “Player Injury Schemes” icon.

The claim form should be fully completed and forwarded together with all relevant supporting documentation (official medical receipts are required – invoices are not acceptable) to the Club Secretary for signing.

All claims are required to be reported to Willis Insurance within 60 days of the incident.  Claims reported outside the 60 day period will not be processed. Claimants must allow 5 working days for the claim form to be validated at both the Club and County Board level.

 

Further Information on the GAA player injury scheme can be found at www.gaa.ie
