Anyone else interested in joining U5 training please contact Erica on 086-8774496. Please make contact as soon as you can as an online health questionnaire needs to be completed before taking part.

For any parents who plan to take a coaching role with the U5 group must complete two steps, firstly Garda vetting must be completed and secondly an online safeguarding course at https://learning.gaa.ie/
safeguarding will bring you to it on the GAA site. It’s a refresher course which covers this aspect of the requirement.

Garda vetting: You cannot be involved as a coach or mentor in any juvenile coaching set up without your GAA Garda vetting being up to date so please apply asap.
