Ardclough GAA Club is fully committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who participate in our activities. We do our utmost to take all practicable steps to safeguard children from any discernible forms of abuse, harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and we respect their rights, wishes and feelings.

Ardclough GAA has, as required under the GAA Our Games – Our Code Guidelines, a designated Children’s Officer who should be the first point of contact for all your child welfare concerns or questions. We would ask everyone involved with the club to support and cooperate with them in their important duties.

If you are –

a Juvenile member who is worried about your treatment within the club
