Return to Play Guidelines
Preparing for a safe return
Following guidelines from the GAA we are now in a position to begin our journey of returning to play. This website contains the latest updates received from the GAA.
Members who have a concern regarding personal higher risk, or a family member / household contact with higher risk, should discuss the situation with their GP (or an appropriate medical professional) before making a decision on whether to return to activity or not.
What does this mean as a player/parent of an underage player?
- The SAFE RETURN FOR GAELIC GAMES.pdf must be read carefully before making your decision to return to play.
Summary of the Guideline Document
- All players and parents of underage players must complete a “Gaelic Games online module” available on the GAA eLearning platform. (This is due to be rolled out on Friday & should take approx 15 mins)
- Before each training session a ‘Health Questionnaire’ has to be completed at home, signed and given to the Covid Officer assigned to your team (Appendix 1) (This point was amended in the updated on the 12/06/2020 Summary of updates)
- Players displaying symptoms do not attend training
- Individual labelled water bottles only to be used
- There is no access to dressing rooms and physical contact must be avoided
- Toilet use is on a controlled basis
Currently all players registrations have been extended until July 31st by the LGFA, wih registration this year running from 1st August 2020 until 30th June 2021.
In advance of a safe return to football can you all please insure that your club is fully aware and prepared to maintain full compliance with the new protocols in the interest of health and safety of all our players, their families and our supporters.
