Juvenile

Junior Infants Boys Pre-Registration

The ongoing Govid-19 government restrictions has meant that the most important boy’s team in the club, the new Fé6 Junior Infants Boys, haven’t been able to commence their GAA training yet. We hope that once the restrictions are lifted, this group will join all their teammates in Midleton GAA Club on the training fields. We also hope that official Club registration will take place when restrictions allow. In the meantime, if any parents of Junior Infant Boys wish to submit their details including name/ number/ email, they can do so to our Juvenile Secretary Michael Carroll at secretarybng.midleton.cork@gaa.ie or to 086-8362218.

 

Safeguarding, Vetting & Coaching

Safeguarding, vetting and coaching training are all mandatory requirements of any GAA club.  To help us create a safe and enjoyable environment for the children who play Gaelic games in Midleton we are very active at the moment in updating our requirements.  

A number of coaches have applied for Garda vetting due to the changes to the legislation which now mean that vetting is valid for three years only, as opposed to the previous rule which allowed for five years.

We recently hosted a Foundation coaching training with GDA Sean Crowley and those who participated on the night are currently completing the online piece following the introduction by Sean.  This qualification will be completed with a practical session later in the year once we are back on the pitch.

Our virtual Safeguarding workshop which is booked for 2nd of March is now full.  If you need to complete this workshop, please contact the Children’s Officer at ChildrensOfficer.midleton.cork@gaa.ie.  We will book another session to facilitate all those who need it at the first available opportunity.

A huge correspondence drive from the club to all coaches who require updating has been ongoing for the last number of weeks.  As a club there has been a phenomenal response to this with the majority active in updating requirements.  This is highly appreciated by the club and will ensure our prompt and safe return to play once the restrictions are eased.  Many thanks to all who are involved.
