Carlow Sports partnership have collaborated with National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of Sport in Ireland to provide your school with the opportunity to upskill teachers, purchase equipment and incorporate new elements of fun into your physical activity curriculum for the upcoming school year at a heavily subsidised price.

There are four paid options and four free options available for each school to chose from. You can avail of one free option with every paid option. This programme will be offered throughout the academic year. Teacher training dates and dates for programmes will be decided in conjunction with the school and NGB’s once your school has signed up.

After each block of activities, Carlow Sports partnership, via the NGB, will put the school in contact with a representative from a local club of that sport to create sustainable links between the school, the sport and wider community.

To sign up for any of the programmes listed for the academic year 2023/24 or for more information, please contact Caroline via or on 087 918 5466
