Hope you are all keeping as well as can be expected in these surreal times.
For the last few months members of the Health & Wellbeing committee have been working on a Resilience Programme for our young Gaels.
This programme was to compliment the already excellent work our coaches had in place for the children. It is still very much a work in progress and there is a lot more content to be included. It was also designed to be delivered in a workshop-based setting. However this is out of our control at the minute but we felt that there is still aspects of the programme that the young people could work on from home that might help them with any emotions they may be feeling at this time.
The learning is taken from a programme called The Big Life Journal, an excellent resource for children from 5 years and up. We have added our own touches to this to make it relevant to Gaelic Games. We hope you find this useful and that it helps to provide support to the children. Their wellbeing is paramount to us as a Club. We had originally planned to pilot this at the U10 Hurlers with a view to rolling out through the different age groups. The content would be aimed from 8 years and up. The title of the programme is The NET Project- Naomh Éanna Together. Very poignant given the times we are in.
Take good care and stay safe.
