The appointment of a Children’s Officers at both Club and County level is an essential element in the creation of a quality atmosphere
and establishing a child and youth centered ethos at both Club and County level.

All of the Gaelic Games’ Associations are committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who participate in our Gaelic Games and activities. In our work with young people and with adults a number of national policy documents act as a resource to us and govern these commitments:

• A Code of Behaviour – when working with underage players – jointly published by the Gaelic Athletic Association, Camogie Association, Ladies Football Association, Rounders Council of Ireland and the Irish Handball Council

• GAA Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport

• GAA Guidelines for Dealing with Allegations of Abuse

• Camogie Association’s Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Young Players

• Ladies Football Association’s Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Young Players
