The Ladies Gaelic Football Association in association with GAA and Camogie Associations recently launched the updated online version of Code of Behaviour (Underage). This Code has been agreed between the LGFA, GAA, the Camogie Association, GAA Handball and GAA Rounders.

The Code replaces all previous Codes and is a mandatory Code of Behaviour for all Gaelic Games Associations in our work with underage players. It is a comprehensive good practice guidance publication, and we are anxious that as many players, coaches, parents and other club personnel have immediate access to its contents.
