Release Date: 10/10/2012

NEXT Wednesday (October 17), the Irish FA and Ulster GAA will be holding a joint training workshop for club personnel and volunteers.

This forms part of a Department for Social Development supported programme aimed at developing clubs and promoting sport in the community. 

This workshop is the first in a two-part series and will provide guidance for clubs on PR, raising their profile, commercial initiatives and the use of social media. There has been quite a bit of interest and so far almost 20 clubs have signed up. These range from junior and amateur league teams right up to Danske Bank Premiership clubs on the Irish FA front and a number of GAA clubs from across County Antrim.

This is a great opportunity for clubs of all shapes and sizes to work more closely together and learn from each other in terms of how to engage with wider society and the communities they exist in. It is hoped that this will be a stepping stone towards closer collaboration, mutual respect and a shared future for the different sporting codes.
