Juvenile Code of Behaviour

A new Code of Behaviour (Underage) comes into effect on 1 November 2014. This is a joint Code shared by all of the Gaelic Games Associations.

This, the 5th version of the Code, replaces all previous editions of the Code of Behaviour when working with children and young people.  The Code you will note is but one section, albeit a vital section, of our overall Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport.

The Code of Behaviour (Underage) is a mandatory Code for all persons working in any role of responsibility with Children in the GAA, Camogie, Ladies Football, Rounders or Handball, and has been adopted by our relevant Central Councils and is in accordance with Rule.

Please note Section 8 of the Code of Behaviour which is a new Section that outlines the agreed mechanism for Dealing with Alleged Breaches of the Code of Best Practice at Club and County level.
