The Ladies Gaelic Football Association are delighted to launch our new BUA initiative and now welcome applications to get involved.

 

What is the BUA Programme?

The BUA programme is a self-development initiative aimed at supporting young people in the association to develop leadership skills and qualities to benefit their community through expert led workshops and self-reflection, before participants put their enhanced leadership skills into action through a club action project.

 

Who can apply to get involved?

Young Females aged 16-19 years that want to improve their leadership skills and ensure there are strong foundations in place to build on for future years.

 

What will participants learn?

Selected participants will engage in learning covering topics essential for young people, including communication, leadership, resilience, dealing with change, building trust and respect, conflict resolution, problem solving, project planning and delegation as well as some LGFA specific topics including introductions to coaching, officiating and administration.

 

When will BUA start and what is the structure?

The programme will begin in June and finish in February 2022. The participants will attend five leadership training sessions remotely and there will be three LGFA specific modules between each leadership session that participants can choose a minimum one from depending on their area of interest.

What is the self-led club project?

All participants will complete a small project in their club focused on youths and this can be across their area of interest.

 

Will there be any mentoring involved?

All participants must nominate their own mentor from the club as part of their application. This should be a mentor who will support them during the programme and come from an area of interest for the participant for example a PRO, coach, referee, secretary etc. An information session will be organised for all mentors so important for applicants to inform their mentor that they are including them on the application and it cannot be a family member.

 

How to apply?

Participants must complete the application form by CLICKING HERE and the closing date is Monday 24th May. Late applications will not be accepted.
