Adare Bord na nÓg is the child section of Adare GAA Club and includes all boys from U6 to U16s. Our philosophy is based on a fun, child centric approach and we believe what is good for your child is good for our club.
It is the vision of Bord na nÓg to develop your child’s lifelong engagement with Adare GAA and be a valued contributor to our club. We wish to maximise participation at all age grades while developing the skills required for your child to be ready and able to progress through each level. Inclusiveness and diversity is at the heart of our ethos and we pride ourselves in welcoming all boys and their families to our club. We strive to be an integral part of community life in Adare and help the boys and their families understand the positive impact they can make in our village. We commit to supporting your child in developing valuable skills through Gaelic games such as teamwork, communication, leadership and life-long friendship.
We work within the GAA “Code of Behavior for Underage” (2016) and central to this is respect. We learn from everything we do and we are on a path of continuous improvement. We treat the referee with respect, knowing they are doing their best and we accept their decision. We respect our opponents and see them as posing a challenge which we work hard to overcome. We respect all those involved in Gaelic games, the coaches, mentors,supporters and most importantly team mates.
We measure our success by overall numbers, player retention, skill development, high levels of fun and enjoyment.
Our vision is that every member in our club is welcomed to take part in our games, to participate fully, to grow and develop and to be inspired to keep a lifelong engagement with our club.
Our mission is to provide a safe, holistic and nurturing environment for all our young people to enjoy Gaelic Games. We aim to encourage our young people to develop and achieve their full potential in our games through enjoyment and mutual respect.
The Adare Bord Na nOg code of conduct for under age is based on the national GAA code of behaviour for underage 2016 and is available (in full) for review at www.gaa.ie.
Success in any sport requires loyalty, respect and discipline, at Adare we encourage these attributes in a positive fashion.
Young players can benefit greatly from sports in terms of personal development and enjoyment. Our players are encouraged to realise that as a result of their participation in our Gaelic Games that they also have a responsibility to treat other players and officials with fairness and respect. With rights there will always be responsibilities.
Young players, and those who work with them in our Associations are required to “sign up” and abide by this code of behaviour.
