Player Welfare - Policy & Code Of Conduct
Club Policies & Code Of Conduct
Whether attending or playing GAA matches, playing Ladies Football, or participating in other club activities, players will do so during some of the most important developmental years of their lives. Our role and our responsibility is to ensure that they benefit from and participate in our Gaelic Games in a safe and enjoyable environment and where our Games are conducted in a spirit of fair play, where everyone working on our behalf emphasises respect, equality, safety and non discrimination in all aspects of our work with children and young people.
Everyone involved in our sports and activities should accept the roles and responsibilities that they undertake as we commit ourselves to maintaining an enjoyable and safe environment for all. The safeguarding of our members will always be a key priority as we recognise that the welfare of the child is of paramount importance in our work.
We wish to see this Code developed, promoted and implemented as an initiative that encourages fair play, respect, equality, safety and non discrimination in all aspects of our work with children and young people.
Code Of Conduct For St Sylvester’s GAA Club
Membership of St Sylvester’s gives rights and privileges, but also imposes responsibilities and obligations that can be summarized in a Code of Conduct.
It aims to address the minimum levels of behaviour, practice and conduct required from our young players, coaches, supporters, parent/guardians, referees and clubs and from those who work them on our behalf. It also asks that those who undertake roles within the Gaelic games commit to maintaining an enjoyable and safe environment for all where the safeguarding of our members will always be paramount.
We would encourage you to take some time to read it.
