Sport is a powerful resource in all communities and can contribute hugely
to creating a positive environment for everyone to enjoy, however at times
the win at all costs and poor sportsmanship can take away from young
people and adults enjoying sports applying unrealistic challenges and
pressures. We hope that through this training resource we can support
and guide sports leaders, parents, coaches, volunteers and athletes in
creating a culture of positivity within their sporting clubs and community
which will encourage and inspire young people into the future.
Donegal Sports Partnership (DSP) has developed this resource in
partnership with the Health Service Executive (HSE) and National
Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and is designed to develop the
potential of sports clubs as settings for positive mental health promotion.
