Security Message from Club Chairperson
As we begin 2017's activities at Sancta Maria and Ballycullen we are looking for some extra volunteers to help with security. Let us not forget that theives are always on the lookout for an opportunity to steal your property so we MUST REMAIN VIGILANT.
Measures are being implemented that will improve Security policies for Training and Match day events. However on specific occasions at Pairc Ui Mhurchu where social or other events are taking place, we do need volunteers to patrol the car park area. If sufficient people volunteer for this work, it is envisaged that they would only be called upon twice a year [max] for such security. Training & security detail will be provided as part of this programme. Could people advise our General Manager, Noel Sheridan at 087 2933829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you wish to become a volunteer. In this regard, as Chairman, I have put my own name forward as a volunteer.
Brendan Moran, Club Chairperson

SAOR training for Ballyboden Mentors Juvenile to Minor
So what is SAOR?
SAOR, meaning “free”, is the acronym for Support, Ask & Assess, Offer Assistance and Refer and is used to describe a model of brief intervention. A brief intervention is any intervention that involves the mimimum amount of time to support a change in a particular type of behaviour. A brief intervention may simply start through a conversation where a problem is identified and the individual is motivated to make a change in relation to the problem behaviour.
While the use of SAOR is designed to guide GAA coaches through a short supportive structured conversation with a player that may be engaged in harmful drug or alcohol use the communication and listening skills acquired through the training can be useful in a variety of training.
SAOR can work especially well with juvenile members in GAA clubs due to the relationships and strong bonds that exist between players and coaches. As coaches we regularly ask our players to leave their life issues in the changing room but for some players this wont be possible. If a player is experiencing difficulty in their lives this can manifest itself both physically and mentally and it is better for a coach to be armed with the skills to deal with these issues if and when they present themselves.
Ballyboden's gym refurbishment is now complete, please see the attached link for important information about access.
