3. All mentors and clubs should implement the “Give Respect Get Respect” <http://www.gaa.ie/content/documents/publications/coaching_and_games/Respect_Initiative_Booklet.pdf>initiative and practice the “Code of Behaviour when Working with Underage Players”<http://www.gaa.ie/content/documents/publications/child_welfare/Code_of_behaviour_3rd_edition.pdf>as per safeguarding training.

Playing Rules
Before and after the game players line up and shake hands with opposing players and referee. Play commences with a throw-in in the middle of the field
A defender may advance 5m for a kick out
‘Two Touch’ Rule applies – players are restricted to one bounce and one toe tap or two toe taps per possession.
Points only (no goalkeepers)
Person fouled takes free
Side line ball – person nearest ball when it goes out takes side line kick
Over carrying – again if appropriate nearest person from opposing team takes free kick
When a defender plays the ball over his/her own end line, the other team are awarded a free kick from the 20 metres from ground/hands

Useful advice: Start all games at same time and finish them at same time (many clubs have successfuly employed an air horn etc for this purpose)
For U10s 8/9 a side is recommended – try if at all possible to arrange the numbers to avoid having substitutes
Please Note:
Mentors should wear give “respect get respect bibs”
Strict adherence to “Our Games Our Code – Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport when working with underage players” as per Tyrone County Board Safeguarding training.
