Go Games has been in existence in national policy since 2010. Over the years the programme has grown from strength to strength with over 124,000 boys and girls participating across the country annually. Since May 2020 the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have worked closely together to develop a common Go Games policy.
The policy continues to maintain the core principles of Go Games –
- All participants play in the full game.
- Activities are structured in a manner which optimises the level of fun, friendship, fair play and achievement derived by participants.
- Participants train and play in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment where they are encouraged to risk error, to learn and to derive maximum enjoyment from their involvement.
- Players master the basic skills of Gaelic games and experience the sense of accomplishment.
- Everybody involved in Go Games, whether as players, parents/guardians, spectators, mentors, teachers, officials etc., should adhere to the key underpinning principles.
