Sport Ireland's Winter Initiative

Sport Ireland's Winter Initiative

The second year of the Winter Initiative, a major national campaign to get as many people as possible exercising and participating in physical activity over the coming months, was launched by Minister of State for Sport and the Gaeltacht, Jack Chambers, on Tuesday 1st November at 12:00pm.

Sport Ireland and Minister Chambers are asking all National Governing Bodies and Local Sports Partnerships to promote their respective events throughout the duration of the winter months (November, December & January).

The first Winter Initiative was a huge success, with thousands of people engaging with activities and programmes organised by NGBs, LSPs and clubs in towns and communities all over the country and that success will be built upon this winter. Winter is often a time when people become less active due to the shorter daylight hours and worsening weather. However, getting involved in sport, exercise and physical activity have huge benefits to individuals and communities and the Winter Initiative is designed to ensure that these can be felt by as many people as possible.

Irish Sailing are highly invested in keeping Ireland Active on the Water even through the colder months. You can see our events page and social pages for all events that are happening over the coming months. You can also head over to to see whats on offer if you are new to the sport and want to get involved.
