Ulster GAA launches plans for 2021 Club Officer Training

December 9th, 2020

Ulster GAA has launched its plans for 2021 Club Officer Training which is set to take place in January for all club officers across Ulster’s nine counties.

As with last year, Ulster GAA is aligning with the National Leadership Programme. This will streamline all training for club officers to minimise the demands on the time of club volunteers, while still providing high quality essential training to empower club officers in their roles going forward in 2021.

The training will be delivered online and is divided into two categories: role specific and development workshops. Role specific training is for people new to their roles in 2021 or any officer wishing to update their skills and knowledge. Development workshops will deal with keys issues facing GAA clubs in 2021 and will be open to all club officers/volunteers.

All clubs are encouraged to ensure that their club is represented at training sessions. For more information on Ulster GAA’s club officer training contact our Volunteer Development and Policy Officer, Pierce Caherty via email on: pierce.caherty.ulster@gaa.ie
