Why are we doing this
Walterstown G.F.C. School Coaching Program
Walterstown G.F.C. has recently recruited a Games Promotion Officer (G.P.O.) to work directly with the schools in the parish. The role of the G.P.O. includes 20 hours per week in the primary schools with a particular emphasis on;
- Fostering and nurturing a love of sports and exercise, in a fun environment with a focus on Gaelic Games.
- Encouraging the value of team sports and the importance of exercise in their daily lives for Health and Well Being.
- Improving overall physical literacy within the school children including Agility Balance and Coordination for continued development.
- Developing sports specific skills.
- Setting a foundation for continued participation in sport and exercise while including Cross Curricular Themes.
- To promote the beginning of a lifetime involvement within Walterstown G.F.C.
Johnstown/Walterstown now has over 1300 children in primary schools in the parish. We see the growth in numbers as a great opportunity to play a key role in their ongoing development.
This long term undertaking and is not without cost and Walterstown G.F.C. is hosting an OSCARZ night on Friday 22nd February 2019 in Knightsbrook Hotel & Spa in Trim. The club is looking for 60 budding actors from the community to show off their acting skills, walk the red carpet and compete for an Oscar.
