bainisteoirLAOIS GAA: As a result of last evening’s County Committee meeting, we have been advised to remind Club members that in order to satisfy incoming Legislation for 2015 that all Club Mentors involved with Teams involving Players Under 25 Years of Age for 2015 are required to have the following courses completed and qualifications:

1. Garda Vetting
2. Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport
3. Minimum completion of GAA Foundation Level Course

Note this also applies to personnel involved in the Primary School / Club Link Coaching programme and we would remind Clubs here that payments to Clubs / Coaches in this programme will not occur unless Coaches are fully compliant.

Garda Vetting for personnel not yet vetted, Code of Best Practice and Coach Education Courses will be ongoing over next couple of months through Deirdre Hurley and our GDA’s.

For further information please contact Seamus Lahart, Laois GAA Childrens Officer on (087) 6628132 or Laois GAA Office (057) 8660674.
