Player and Child Welfare

At Faughs we believe in putting the welfare and protection of children foremost in everything we do. We want our children to have fun, learn new skills and make friends in a safe and enjoyable environment.

“The Gaelic Athletic Association is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who wish to participate in our Gaelic Games and activities. We will take all practicable steps to protect them from discernible forms of abuse – from harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and shall respect their rights, wishes and feelings.” – GAA

To achieve this goal, Faughs and the GAA insist that all club members working as Coaches, Mentors or Referees are vetted by the National Vetting Bureau.
