Support Winter Training Facilities for all Children in Terenure!

Terenure badly need winter training facilities for local schools and clubs, comprising about 4,000 children. These schools and clubs especially need artificial, all-weather pitch in CDETB sports grounds so kids can participate in sport year-round to improve their health and self-esteem.

  • higher self-esteem;
  • fewer behavioural problems;
  • better psychosocial skills;
  • higher grades, expectations, and attainment;
  • greater personal confidence and self-esteem;
  • greater connections with school;
  • stronger peer relationships;
  • more academically oriented friends;
  • greater family attachment and more frequent interactions with parents;
  • more restraint in avoiding risky behaviour;
  • greater involvement in volunteer work;
  • better adaptive skills;
  • acquire skills that are beneficial in other domains (e.g., school, family, work).
