COVID 19 Exercise From Home

It is more important than ever to keep active now, especially when you are cocooning and not able to get out for your daily walk. We have teamed up with some of our tutors to bring you some ideas.

Get Active: Older Adults

Encouraging older adults to participate in sport and physical activity within their community, while also providing access to competitive sports which are fulfilling and inclusive for interested participants. Our older adults programmes assist in broadening the range of sport and physical activity opportunities within local communities, increasing awareness, access, and choice. Here’s a flavour of our Older Adults programme:

Go for Life Games

The overall aim of Go for Life is to get older people more active, more often.The Go for Life Games League has been a great success in County Clare. We run 2 leagues, one in the winter and one in the spring. The spring league is a precursor to the national event that usually takes place in June. The Go for Life Games adapted by Go for Life involve three sports that can be played in Singles, Pairs and Teams. Lobbers- adaption of Petanque and BoulesFlisk- adaption of Frisbee and Horseshoe Pitching Scidil-adaption of Ten-Pin Bowling and SkittlesIt is important to remember: The emphasis of the Games is on participation and funPlayed in a non-competitive way as much as possible.

Group Development & Support

Group Development and Support

Since 2014, we have been involved with setting up new groups in local communities. This has been especially succesfull in North Clare, where we have teamed up with the North Clare Primary Healthcare Team. Groups have been established in Ballyvaughan, Carron, Tubber, Corofin, Crusheen. In addition to this, we have also set up new groups in Kilkishen, Ennis and Kilmaley. If you feel that you would like a group in your area, please contact us for further details. Alternatively, have a look at this map to see if you have a group nearby you.
