Under 8 to Under 11
Parent / Guardian attendance
It has been confirmed that parents or guardians attending a sporting event in a “safeguarding” or “supervisory” capacity will not be classified as spectators, although strict social distancing and public health guidelines should be adhered to at all times. The GAA recommendation as issued on Wednesday was “While we await further clarification on the issue of parents attending juvenile games we suggest that one parent or guardian may attend a game where they consider it necessary for the welfare of their own child.” I believe Sport Ireland to issue “strict protocols” in the coming days.
The position for our U15 & U16 Championships is that for a 15 a-side game 5 subs may be used ( if 13 a-side 7 subs)
For our U12, U13 & Féile competitions, unlimited substitutions can be made.
Our restructured Féile commences on Saturday afternoon. While it’s not quite the same this year we wish all taking part an enjoyable few weeks with each team guaranteed at least 4 games per code. As with all teams please make sure all associated with these teams do their utmost to protect public health. All Féile games are 30 minutes per half.
Get the Tape Out!!!
The GAA Motions passed at the Congress this year became effective March 28th.
One of the changes states:
In Underage Hurling up to and including U12 age groups the use of metal bands on hurleys is prohibited unless the metal bands are taped over.
Enjoy your weekend and Stay Safe
Yours in Sport,
