Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport Launched

LGFA President, Pat Quill, took part in the launch of the new Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport at Croke Park last Saturday. The code is the result of extensive consultation between the LGFA, the GAA, the Camogie Association, the Handball Association and the Rounders Association and will help to safeguard the young players involved in the sport.


Amongst the new guidelines that have been introduced are Guidelines for Effective Communication, Guidelines for Photographers and Video Camera Users along with guidelines on how best to use Club websites and social media in the safest way possible.


Speaking about the launch of the new code Mr. Quill said ‘In today’s world, parents are rightly more discerning when it comes to choosing activities that are suitable for their children. With the publication of this document we are reinforcing the fact that the gaelic football pitch is a safe, healthy and fun place for young girls to come together and get involved in sport.’


Speaking about the close cooperation between the assoications he said ‘I believe that this is another example of how effectively we can all work with a unified vision. I look forward to continuing to nurture our relationship with the family of Gaelic Games as we work on our shared concerns and goals into the future.
