Gum Shields: Compulsory, available in local shops, Best one has a gel centre. They need to be softened and fitted so not usable straight out of the box. Tell your kids to store them in their socks if not in use on the pitch, until back in the box.
Skorts: Skorts are compulsory for U12 matches & upwards. They can be difficult to find in sports shops. We usually order them as a club early in the year from a company called Intosport. Individual orders are possible. Skorts are available in different material, lycra (O'Neills)or cotton (Intosport).
Jerseys: Jerseys are provided for matches by the club for u9's upwards. If U6,7,8's would like a Jersey, parents could organise a group purchase from the designated camogie and ladies football.
Hurley's: The most important thing about buying a hurley is size. The right size hurley for your child means your child will succeed faster. Too short is better than too long. The weight of the hurley is key for younger players, the lighter the better. Your hurley needs a grip for the handle available in local shops and sports shops. Camogie does not allow uncovered metal bands on hurleys. Cover metal bands with insulation tape. U6's should be looking at a 20" 0r 22" but ask your coach or mentor to size your child for a hurley before buying.
Hurley's are available to buy in Barryroe Co-op, Ballinspittle.Small hurleys start at €15.

Our Game Our Code
The club abides by the code of behaviour as set down by the Irish Sports Council in the document "Our Game Our Code". There are codes of behaviour for each stakeholder in the club including:
Please take the time to read the code with your child and ensure you have signed the declaration on the membership form. Thank you
Have your child to training 5 mins before the start time.
Should you choose to remain at the pitch for the duration of the training time, we would be very grateful for any help with bibs and laces.
In the interest of hygiene, we would advise for your child to bring their own bottle of water to training/matches.
Should you choose to remain at the pitch for the duration of the training time, we would be very grateful if you escort your own child to the toilet. This would save the coaches a lot of time.
Please reply to Coaches/mentors text messages as promptly as possible, in order for coaches to arrange matches and they need to know numbers asap.
If there are any issues/needs you feel the coach should be made aware concerning your child please do so at the beginning of the season.
Should any matter arise during the season please approach the coach/mentors at the end of a training session.
Please make your child aware of the traffic dangers at the pitch and that it is imperative they exercise caution at all times while on the GAA grounds.
We encourage all parents to attend club meetings throughout the season, your feedback is valued.
