The Camanachd Association (CA) believe that we need to work towards creating a healthy environment that is inviting to all and which promotes the integration of healthy behaviours and values into the everyday activities of shinty. We are committed to promoting health and well-being and have provided a number of template policies below to support our member clubs and associations with this goal.
Health and Wellbeing covers a wide range of topics including Fitness – Nutrition – Hydration – First Aid – Concussion - Alcohol & Drugs, Smoking – Mental Health – Anti-Bullying– Community activity. One of the highest profile aspects of health and wellbeing was recently covered in a half time feature by BBC Alba.
