Clubs are reminded of the Key Objectives of the Go Games:
Promote Full Participation: Provide playing opportunities for all children at their respective levels of participation by ensuring everyone gets to play in the game and that nobody remains a substitute. “Playing, not winning, is the name of the game.”
Propagate the Principles of Fair Play: Promote sportsmanship by ensuring that all participants endeavour to play by the rules and give due respect to the opposition, the match officials and the game. Mentors should ensure they are wearing “Give Respect” bibs
Cater for the varying developmental needs of young players: Use modified playing rules and equipment that are appropriate to the age group and ability level of those participating
Implement the GAA’s Code of Best Practice for Youth Sport and follow the guidance from the GAA’s RESPECT initiative:
