Welcome to the Players section of the MyGAA.ie.
The player is central to the GAA and all its activities. The skill and dedication of our players at all levels have captured the imagination of the public since the founding of the GAA and have been fundamental to the on-going success of the Association. The welfare of players is therefore of paramount importance to the GAA and its future success.
The Association’s Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee is comprised of medical professionals, players and administrators, they work to ensure that player welfare matters are kept to the forefront of priorities within the GAA. The primary responsibility of the Medical, Scientific and Welfare committee is to advise the Association on medical and general welfare matters relevant to our games and to drive Association policy in these areas.
You will find best practice advice in relation to Player Welfare for players, coaches, medical personnel and administrators at the Player section of the GAA Learning website.
The GAA Player Welfare Booklet is a compilation of this advice and best practice guidelines for players.
For those involved in the preparation of teams the GAA has recently published Guidelines for Appropriate and Safe Training Guideline for Gaelic Games
