We’d like to invite all of our parents, coaches, young adults and old adults along to a fantastic new initiative being spearheaded by a number of sports organisations in Galway including ourselves.
Pat Lam, Connacht Rugby head coach is special guest at a discussion evening in Oranmore which explores ways in which positive mindset and motivation can be fostered. Lam’s vast experience of motivating players to achieve their optimum, as well as supporting people to deal with life’s knocks and self –doubts, is guaranteed to captivate the audience. This event will be held next Thursday November 26th at 8pm in the Oranmore Lodge Hotel.
Sport and physical fitness have long been acknowledged as valuable tools for improving personal growth and overall wellbeing. The organisers decided to focus on the benefits of physical fitness and participation in sport clubs. The aim is to get people talking and thinking about how to build resilience and motivation.
Mental fitness is best promoted by hearing from those who often defy the odds and show resilience. Nothing is more powerful than a story and this event will see some inspiring sports people share their story. More than ever, people need to develop positive attitudes and hobbies to counteract a culture which often promotes unhealthy lifestyles and negativity.
Pat Lam will be joined by FAI official/coach, Des Tomlinson, Jeffrey Lynskey, Galway Minor Hurling Manager, an athletics coach to share their insights at this discussion evening. The format of the evening will be relaxed and informal and encourages open discussion. It will be facilitated by Sean Walsh of Galway Bay FM.
Galway is lucky to have a range of good sports organisations who are working together to promote co-operation and self-help. The approach is simple, namely, to support each other at club and community level. This event is free and anyone with an interest the subject is welcome to attend whether or not they partake in sports clubs.
This event is organised by Clarinbridge GAA, Colga FC, Oranmore Maree GAA, SCCUL Enterprises, Mental Health Ireland, Maree-Oranmore FC, Craughwell Athletic Club and Clarinbridge Camogie.
