Just a Reminder that all referees/helpers etc aged 17 or over (or those turning 17 shortly) must do the Child Safeguarding course. This is a requirement of the GAA. 

Please contact the Children’s Officer to book a place on this course which will be held on Monday 29th April @ 7pm in club. The course is approx 3 hours over one evening. 

This course is compulsory for all involved in juvenile activities including refereeing (our juvenile referees included). There are a limited number of places available. 

Also can coaches please ensure that the referees they use have done the referee course. A full list of our qualified referees is available from the Juvenile Secretary. Referees must also apply for Vetting once they turn 16. 

If anyone would like any more information on this please let me know.
