On Monday 28th April our chairman Jimmy McGeough attended a briefing of all club Children’s Officers and Designated Persons. The briefing offered an overview of the important role these officers play within the club and it also gave an insight about recent legislation and certain duties and procedures to be followed by clubs.
The Code entitled “Our Games – Our Code” is a comprehensive good practice guidance publication and we (Rockcorry GAA) are anxious that as many players, coaches, parents and other Club personnel have immediate access to its contents. Our Games – Our Code will assist the club in supporting and directing our members in their work with underage teams in a coordinated and developmental manner.

Our role and more importantly our responsibility is to ensure that all children 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-DISCRIMATION in all aspects of our work with children and young people.
