The publication by the Gaelic Athletic Association, Ladies Gaelic Football Association, the Camogie Association, GAA Handball Ireland and the Rounders Council of Ireland of this joint Code of Behaviour (Underage) is a milestone for our Associations, replacing as it does the previous Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport.
This new Code brings together the collective good practice experiences of all Associations and marks a momentous occasion as we seek, through the implementation of an agreed and joint policy document, that while promoting our games amongst young people, we also seek to provide a safe environment in which we can develop children, under 18 years of age, in a caring and respective environment within our respective Associations.
This Code applies to all persons under 18 yrs. of age who participate in our games or other activities and to those who work with them and assist them in any capacity on our behalf.
