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.

PUM Update

All, I'm delighted to report that the reconstruction of PUM is now complete (see attached pic) Certainly all those Novenas' paid off as the weather was very kind to us especially over the last two weeks. I'd like to pay a special thanks to all who worked extremely hard to make this happen within a tight time frame. Our principle contractor DarGolf together with consultant Richard Hayden worked many a long evening with Frank Moran and myself to ensure all aspects of project was professionally delivered. The attention to detail by both was exemplary. Also two other key contractors, ACE Fencing and Connacht Sportsnets worked within very specific deadlines to deliver a very high standard of finish on both boundary fence and netting.

  However I cannot let this opportunity pass without mentioning the excellent goodwill and support from our neighbors both in Westbourne and Cremorne. Without their full support this project could not have happened and the club will be forever grateful. On behalf of all Ballyboden St Enda;s and the wider community can I say a big 'Thank You'.

  Finally its now up to all our members to respect this very valuable resource. With seeding now complete we would hope to re-open pitch early summer. However its critical to allow growth to fully develop over next few months undisturbed. Please be vigilant and prevent anyone from accessing the pitch even to collect a ball. It will be to all our benefit in the long term.

Again thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding during the development.
John Ryan, Chairman, Development Committee
