BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
This week sees a welcome return to the GAA fields of Tipperary of all our under 18 players, as we look forward to a summer of training and games it is very important that we all play our part to make sure that all activities are carried out in a safe manner and in line with the protocols and guidelines as set out by both the GAA and Government.
The GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have partnered to provide a Covid 19 education programme to help those involved in clubs return safely to Gaelic Games activities.
Be ready to play programme is a coaching and sports science programme that is being delivered by webinars, website programmes, instructional videos, and live sessions.
This is a holistic programme supporting players and coaches during their return to play. All the details have been submitted to clubs and can also be accessed on social media.
GAA President Larry McCarthy has also written an open letter to all clubs in which he strongly encouraged our clubs, coaches, games development officers and those responsible for planning and organising fixtures to ensure everyone benefits from a multitude of playing opportunities. “Let us all work towards providing as many games opportunities as possible; including leagues, blitzes and creative festival-type competitions, over a longer season, consider allowing more substitutions – or even unlimited – and provide alternative formats to provide a playing environment that creates the best possible experience for all our young players”.
He goes on to say “Those of us with a responsibility for nurturing the development of our next generation of players should be mindful of the fact that the benefit of lifelong participation in Gaelic games is not something that we should measure in terms of cups or medals or competitions won.
The GAA is about People. It should be about friendships, positive experience and feeling a valued part of something that belongs to all of us”.
So lets all make sure that our actions around return to play will ensure that our grounds remain open going forward so that all our players both young and old can enjoy all that is good about our wonderful association in Tipperary and further afield.
