Child Welfare and Protection

Tramore Camogie Club promotes and implements a code of behaviour that encourages fair play, respect, equality and safety.  The Tramore Camogie Club Code of Behaviour complements the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport and addresses the appropriate levels of behaviour, practice and conduct required from our young players, coaches, mentors, supporters, parents/ guardians and clubs.


Tramore Camogie Club has adopted the GAA Code of Behaviour and asks that all our players sign up to this Code of Conduct when registering.

The Code of Behaviour (Underage) aims to ensure that games are conducted in a spirit of fair play where everyone working on our behalf emphasise respect, equality, safety and non-discrimination in all aspects of our work with children and young people.

Player Welfare

The Camogie Association's Player Welfare Booklet contains useful resources and information for players, coaches, parents and guardians. It includes information on injury prevention, mental health and nutrition.

Tramore Camogie Club Concussion Protocol

The document below contains details based on the most recent guidelines published by the GAA Medical Scientific and Welfare Committee in 2018.

It is intended as a master guideline to those involved in the sport and as an assistance to players, coaches, referee’s and medics in understanding and managing suspected concussion at all levels of the game. In this document, the Camogie Association reaffirms its position that if there are any signs leading to a suspicion of a concussion for a player, at any level or any age, the player should be removed immediately from play, and not return to action on the same day (the impact itself may on occasion be considered an indicator in this context, even in the absence of any immediate symptoms).

The Camogie Association is also adopting and promoting the GAA Information Sheets on Concussion for Players, Young Players (5-18 year olds), Coaches, Parents and Referees.
