As Micheal MacGraith Club Tramore consists of adult and juvenile hurling, camogie and ladies football, a joint Child Safeguarding Statement is issued on behalf of all Associations in the Club. The club's Safeguarding Statement is on display in the club pavillion.
Tramore Camogie Club's Child Welfare Officer is Ruth Farrell.
On behalf of Tramore GAA club, Barry Connor is the Designated Liaison Person (DLP)
Tramore Camogie Club has completed its own Child Safeguarding Risk Assessment in respect of procedures and activities in the Camogie club.All our coaches are Garda e-Vetted and trained with Safeguarding 1 and each coach has obtained Coaching Foundation Level.
Child Safeguarding (Protection) Training
Three levels of Child Safeguarding are now in place in the GAA/Camogie:
1. Child Welfare & Protection Basic Awareness is highlighted in Children First (Children First Act 2015) as being mandatory and is the minimum level of awareness training required irrespective of the level of engagement one has in the Association.
2. The Children's Officers should be child-centred in focus and their primary aim is to establish a child-centred ethos within the club. Any issues in this regard are first addressed by the Club's Children's Officer who then assesses the next course of action, if required.
3. The Designated Liaison Person is responsible for reporting allegations or suspicions of child abuse to Child and Family agency (Tusla) and/or An Garda Siochána.
All training has and is delivered in workshop format at various times during the year. Each course is endorsed by Sport Ireland, which is the authority tasked with the development of sport in Ireland.
Our underage players will spend some of the most enjoyable days of their lives playing our games.
Whether attending or playing Camogie, they will do so during some of the most important developmental years of their lives. Our role and our responsibility is to ensure that:
- children benefit from and participate in our Gaelic Games in a safe and enjoyable environment
- our Games are conducted in a spirit of fair play where everyone working on our behalf emphasises respect, equality, safety and non discrimination in all aspects of our work with children and young people.
We follow 'Code of Behaviour - Underage'.
