All Children Inclusion
 
All Children should be playing at all times up to U11 (GO Games) no exceptions at either training or any other gathering.
No competitions - no cups, no trophies.
No winners or losers.
No young children should be standing on the sidelines watching their friends and peers play.
Its all about participation and enjoyment.
Its about the development of all young players whether weak or strong.
Its about developing the fundamental skills of both Gaelic football and hurling.
Its about positive reinforcement for all Children to promote their decision making and rotating in different positions all the time playing and using both sides in a spirit of fair play in a safe environment.
Remember the late developer will become a competent player if given the chance.
 
Give Respect, Get Respect.
