Welcome to the Health and Wellbeing section of the offical Waterford GAA website.
A motion passed at the historic GAA Congress in 2013 placed in rule the requirement for every county executive to establish a health and wellbeing sub committee. This motion came from the small Sigerson’s club in Tyrone, and is a great example of the democratic nature of the Association in action. Tyrone had already established their health and wellbeing committee at county level and were keen to share the positive influence it was having across the 32 counties and beyond.
The new rule came into effect in January 2014 and counties have since been actively recruiting suitable and enthusiastic members. The Terms of Reference of the County Health and Wellbeing Committees’ are designed to ensure the membership is representative of the Association as a whole, while also tapping into the wealth of knowledge and expertise within the Association and the wider community. It is also hope the new committees will offer an additional support structure for officers that previously operated in a largely independent environment, such as the ASAP Officer or the Social Initiative Coordinator.
