Saval GAC Awarded Club Maith Gold Standard!!!
We are delighted to announce that Saval GAC has successfully completed the accreditation process for Club Maith and has been awarded a Gold standard. This is a significant achievement for the club and is not only an endorsement of the high standards of governance in place but will also be of great importance in our future development, especially in relation to funding applications. Thanks to Club Development Officer Anthony Crozier who led the application process and to the rest of the Club Maith "team" of Emma Westcott, Sean Ryan, Michael McConville, Anne Lennon and P J Quinn in compiling the portfolio for submission. There then followed a visit by the Assessors who were extremely impressed with all aspects of the club, so a big well done to all.
The presentation of the award will take place shortly.
What is Club Maith?
Club Maith is a club accreditation which is unique to the GAA. It allows Clubs to be benchmarked against best practice standards across a full range of GAA Club activity. A Club Maith award makes a clear, proven statement about the quality of a club right across a wide range of disciplines. The assessment process involves the submission of a club portfolio to the Club Maith assessors at the Ulster Council which must demonstrate how the club matches up to the governance standards set out in the Club Maith framework. The portfolio is then assessed and as part of the overall assessment, Assessors also visit the club to review coaching standards and discuss the portfolio with the relevant club officers.
