Safeguarding 1 - Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Training

Tipperary Sports Partnership is facilitating a Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Basic Awareness training. The course is aimed at sports leaders, children’s officers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport. A central goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills.

Safeguarding 2 - Club Children's Officer (CCO)

A person appointed to the Club Children’s Officer position in a club must have completed safeguarding 1 (Child Welfare & Protection Basic Awareness workshop) and should complete the Safeguarding 2 Club Children’s Officer 3 hour workshop.
This course will help the Club Children’s Officer to carry out the function of their role in the club and support the implementation of best practice in the club.
Club Children's Officers should be child centered in focus and have as the primary aim the establishment of a child centered ethos within the club.

Keep Well – let’s Get Ireland Walking into 2021

New ‘Keep Well’ Walking Challenge launched to encourage people to walk for 30 minutes every day for three weeks.
The Keep Well campaign is aimed at showing people of all ages how we can mind our own physical and mental health and wellbeing by adding healthy and helpful habits to our daily and weekly routine

Sport Ireland, Get Ireland Walking and Healthy Ireland are encouraging people of all ages to walk into 2021 by taking part in the Keep Well Walking Challenge.

Orienteering

Orienteering is the sport of navigation that requires you to find your way from one point to another using only a map, your brains and sometimes a compass. It’s easy to learn and a fun way to exercise your body and mind, as you enjoy the outdoors. It’s a sport for everyone and is something that can be easily learnt by people of all ages and abilities. Orienteering is usually done in the woods, hills or parks, with the participants on foot and it develops many skills including problem solving, team work, decision making and self awareness. It really is fun for all the family.

Outdoors for Everyone

Stay Local, Stay Apart & Stay Safe in the Outdoors
Outdoor recreation plays an important role in supporting the physical and mental wellbeing of society & people are encouraged to enjoy the outdoors while adhering to Government protocols.
As Phase 1 of the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business begins, a nationwide approach to participating in outdoor recreation has been adopted.
