Safeguarding Course 

London GAA are organising two Safeguarding Course for all of our youth coaches/mentors/administrators involved with London GAA. First one Tuesday, April 18th which will run from 7pm - 10pm in Hazelwood, Sunbury-on-Thames (TW16 6 QU). Second on Wednesday, April 19th which will run from 7pm - 10pm. in the Claddagh Ring, Hendon (NW4 4EA).

Courses are limited to 20 people and in the interest of fairness only accept 5 nominations from each Club. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please contact Llyod Colfer 078 72600073 if you are interested in attending. Finally, under the new guidelines from the Provincial Council of Britain GAA, anyone involved with teams that have players under the age of 18 must be DBS certified, complete a Coaching Course and also, a Safeguarding Course so it is imperative that we get as many people as possible to attend these Courses over the coming weeks and months before the season starts as there will be a zero tolerance policy on this from the London County Board and the Provincial Council going forward.
