County Iontach Launched

As a build on to the release of our Club Accreditation Scheme "Club Iontach" last year, today GAA Handball has released a "County Iontach" support programme for all of its County Handball Boards.

County Iontach aims to provide County Handball Boards with guidance in best practice across four core areas, in a bid to improve to increase effectiveness and efficiency. An extensive bank of appendices and templates have been developed to aid County Boards and reduce workloads.

Core Areas:

  1. Management
  2. Communications, Image & PR
  3. Coaching & Development
  4. Safety

Different to Club Iontach, the County Iontach programme is merely guidance documents for our County Boards, with no submission of documentation/evidence required. We expect the programme will be of benefit in particular when new delegates are appointed to key County Board roles, and hope all of our County Boards take this support on board and utilise it to their benefits.

A PDF version of the checklist is available at the above link if County Boards wish to print off a copy and tick off criteria when they are completed.

All documentation and support material will be permanently available at the Club Iontach Homepage in our Development section, via the above link.

As always, we welcome any feedback on this new programme from our County Boards. If there are additional topics or support resources you need advice on, or if you feel would be a beneficial addition to County Iontach, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
