Initiatives - Healthy Club
St Sylvester’s Healthy Club
The Healthy Club project aims to help GAA clubs explore how they support the holistic health of their members and the communities they serve. GAA clubs already contribute to the health and wellbeing of their members by providing opportunities to develop their physical, social, emotional, and psychological health.
The project aims to help GAA clubs identify what they are already doing well, identify areas where they can or would like to improve, and empower them to ensure that everyone who engages with their club benefits from the experience in a health-enhancing way, be they players, officers, coaches, parents, supporters, or members of their local community.
St. Sylvester’s gained official ‘Healthy Club’ status at the National GAA Healthy Club Conference on Saturday 5th October 2019 following a year of supporting our community in pursuit of better physical, social, and mental well-being with the introduction of 'The Healthy Club'.
The aim of the GAA Healthy Club is to create initiatives covering mental & physical health in young people, diversity and inclusion, positive aging & the importance of physical activity. Activities already underway are:
- Regular walks in Malahide & the coast road
- Healthy diet talks
- Mental health Talks for both teenagers & for parents, in partnership with Jigsaw
We also support the annual Darkness Into Light Walk in Malahide Castle with a breakfast at our Clubhouse afterwards for all who would like to relax and enjoy a chat with others
