The training consists of 8 workshops including activities such as sit fit, better balance, going strong, basic principles, rolling & bowling, pitching & tossing, stepping & strolling and PALs skills (please see enclosed information leaflet for further information).  The workshops are intended to support attendees to lead their group in regular physical activity.  Training is free of charge (tea/coffee and a light lunch will be served at each workshop).

Each workshop starts at 10am until 3pm and will take place in the SMA Centre, Wilton, Cork as follows: Please note that a minimum of two members per group is required.
