Mind and Body Self Defence Programme

The programme is six weeks long. Classes are once a week for one hour and a half. The first half will be focused on building mindset skills using positive and coaching psychology methods. Mindset training will involve being introduced to foundational positive psychology theories and techniques. Each session will provide simple exercises that support the development of a positive and resilient mindset. The second part of the class teaches physical self-defence. This involves training the techniques necessary to defend yourself when targeted by crime or violence. The style of self-defence stems from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The course is focused on teaching the participants to learn movements required to defend themselves in a variety of potentially dangerous scenarios. https://youtu.be/Crsl-27YYNs 6 Week Timeline Download Our Brochure Here

                    Running Clubs

                    Launch of three new Athletics Clubs in South Dublin County. South Dublin Couth Sports Partnership (SDCSP) and Athletics Ireland (AI) Launched three new South Dublin County Running Clubs alongside Mayor Peter Kavanagh and TD Mark Ward with a 5km Walk/ Run event in Corkagh Park on Sunday September 26th. During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, SDCSP role was to engage as many people in physically activity through a wide range of new innovative programmes and support existing community clubs & organisations. During this time of uncertainty local people came together in both Bawnogue (Bawnogue Running Club) and Clondalkin Village (Clondalkin Flyers) to meet up for runs and encouraging people within these areas to join them. These runs became a huge success with numbers increasing on a weekly basis giving people a sense of community while working on their physical and mental health. With the success of the other groups North Clondalkin Running Club was formed as part of SDCSP North Clondalkin Sports Hub and supported by South Dublin County Partnership. SDCSP recognised how much these local leaders of the clubs had inspired their communities and looked at how they can support them. Community Sports Officer Ian Farrell contacted Athletics Ireland’s David Matthews, and both set out a plan to turn these running groups into Official AI Running Clubs by offering a Start-up Package and we now have three new official running Clubs in South Dublin County. The first step was to upskill the groups running leaders through a coach education course with AI which we had 26 (22 from South Dublin County) people trained up as running coaches followed by having the clubs set up committees and registering to be affiliated with AI. These clubs have now made out long term plans with the help of the SDCSP to ensure that they can grow and be sustainable.

                        Glow Dance

                        This programme has been running since November 2018. This is an initiative created by South Dublin Sports Partnership to encourage teenage girls aged between 12 – 15 years of age to get more active. Is has since been opened to people of all ages an ability.
                        • We create a fun environment that girls can enjoy dance in a non-competitive atmosphere. The facility and equipment being used are decorated so they glow under UV lights.
                        • The participants are provided with UV face/body paint, and clothing so that they glow under the UV lights.
                        • It is more of a social event than a skill-based activity so that girls can participate in an environment that does not require them to be good or bad.
                        If you would like to run a Glow Dance event for your club or organisation, please contact Ian Farrell our Community Sports Officer. This could also be used as a birthday party event. Parents can avail of this service which will give kids the opportunity to participate in Glow Dance.

                          BoxSmart programme

                          The Start Box Initiative, a partnership between SDCSP and the IABA represents an ideal way to first engage with amateur boxing through the communities of Dublin. 7,500 young people engaged in StartBox since starting in 2019. Underpinning community structures and providing a new platform for people to engage with Ireland’s most successful Olympic sport, boxing in the community further proves that our sport has a lot to offer a lot of different people. The community development boxing team includes Adam McGarry and Mags Cross who work with over 50 schools during the school year. Vast numbers of young school children, both boys and girls continue to participate in Startbox programme and it is clear to see that the Boxing initiative in the Community is proving to be very popular with both kids and schools alike. Anyone school who wishes to engage with StartBox should contact Ian Farrell CSDO

                            Calisthenics

                            Calisthenics is a sport that requires attainment of gross motor skills in order to be able to develop and achieve the movements involved in the sport. It is a sport that uses bodyweight exercises to produce movements. There is proof that states Fundamental Movement Skills help to develop a child’s overall gross motor skills, but what do we do when they can perform those basic movements already? We want to propose the use of Calisthenics as an advancement on those skills and the next logical progression to further develop children and their athletic ability. Aims To further improve upon fundamental movements skills and showcase that children are capable of enhancing their athletic ability and fundamental movement even further by using bodyweight exercises that are involved in calisthenics. To have more people using the Public Parks in South Dublin for the benefit of their health through calisthenics.   Classes are be held during school hours by qualified coaches. We have 6 coaches trained up in local communities who will be the driving force for calisthenics. With SDCC implementing Calisthenics Equipment into parks and SDCSP teaching people how to use the equipment we believe it will create a culture of physical activity in the communities. The structure of the classes will last roughly 30 minutes depending on the school and their time frame available for this programme. An assessment chart is used that showcases the movements within Calisthenics that they will work on and help them understand what they are aiming to do and to have better terminology on the movements within the sport. These movements will be worked on and assessed over a 6-12-week period. This time period depends on the school’s availability towards the programme, so obviously the longer we work with the groups the more improvements that will be made. Results of the research conducted by our Community Sports Officer over a 12-week period with primary school pupils in 3rd to 6th class provide an insight into how much this can benefit the development of your children taking part in the Calisthenics programme.

                              This is one of the one of the largest School Sports Programme in the country. We work with over 50 schools in South Dublin County and 17 National Governing Bodies of Sport. Purpose of the school programme This programme seeks to link Sporting Bodies with local schools. The main aims of the programme are:
                              • To allow children in participating schools to experience high level coaching in specific sport disciplines
                              • To provide structured Teacher Professional Development in the area of Physical Education
                              • To provide schools with a knowledge base to allow them continue offering the sport with their physical education programme after the formal programme finishes
                              • To enhance PE equipment within schools
                              • To encourage the children to become involved with the coached sport at club level outside of school
                               General Outline 
                              • Programmes will include a 2-3 hour teacher training element. This 2-3 hour session can be delivered at a time that suits the school – within school hours where teachers can be released for the training or after school as part of Croke Park hours. In all cases teacher CPD programmes are free to the schools.
                              • Programmes may offer a 4-6 week training package.
                              • Equipment to support the sport may be available to the school at approximately -40% - 50% of cost price.
                              • Schools may apply for up to two activities within the scheme, 1 per term.
                              It is envisaged that demand will exceed available resources and in this event SDCSP will endeavour to deliver a single programme to as many schools as possible rather than multiple programmes to a smaller number of schools. Garda Vetting: All sports coaches will be vetted through South Dublin County Sports Partnership with a written agreement between SDCSP and individual schools. Timeline:  Term One:                   Mid-September – End of October Term Two:                   Early November – Mid December Term Three:                Mid-January – End of February
