Child Welfare & Protection Courses

We have now completed the four regional child welfare & Protection courses and would like to thank and congratulate all those who took part. Club officers should ensure that all personnel, working in any capacity no matter how small, with underage teams complete this course. A maximum of 18 people per course means that most clubs should hold a course for themselves.
Please note the course taking place on this Thursday evening, November 4th in Drumreilly hall is fully booked. This course will commence at 7pm.
