Straffan Camogie Code of Behaviour

Straffan Camogie Club is proud to follow the Code of Behaviour as agreed jointly between the Camogie Association, the GAA and the LGFA.

Such is the importance of the child safeguarding and protection agenda in our work that each of the Gaelic Games Associations have brought together the collective best practices
based on many years of experience as we seek to provide a safe environment in which we can promote our games and enable young people and children to develop in a caring and respective environment. 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.


Our role and our responsibility is to ensure that they benefit from and participate in our Gaelic Games in a safe, enjoyable and developmental environment where our Games are conducted in a spirit of fair play with everyone who works on our behalf emphasising respect, equality, safety and non-discrimination in all aspects of our work with children and young people. Each member of our Associations has a responsibility to accept and implement this Code as it directs us in such work.

Players who wish to report any concerns that they have for themselves in relation to abuse or bullying should talk to an adult they trust. This should then be reported by the adult to the club DLP.
