Club Covid-19 Supervisor.

The GAA Covid-19 Advisory Group have issued an initial guidance document entitled “Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games”. This document (click to open the following link and again on the GAA Guidelines document on the Website)  Club Covid Supervisor  outlines a set of critical recommendations that would allow a safe resumption of activities within Clubs. One of the main recommendations is a requirement for each Club to appoint a Club Covid Supervisor whilst the pandemic virus is impacting our training and games activities.

It is envisaged that each team in the Club will have a nominated person (Team Covid Officer) with whose main  responsibility will be to ensure adherence to the recommended Covid-19 Sanitisation Protocols after each training session or game.

The main duties of the Club Covid Supervisorwill include;

  1. Facilitate the distribution and collating of players and backroom members Health Questionnaire’s before  training sessions and games. (A copy of the questionnaire is Appendix 1 of the above document link.)
  2. Ensuring sanitising of facilities is completed by each Team Covid Officer before and after each training session or game.
  3. Maintaining records of attendees.

An online Gaelic Games education module will be provided to assist in understanding both the purpose and role of this important function.

The Club would like to receive expressions of interest, before Friday June 19th., from any individuals willing to undertake this task for the next few months.

Please contact any member of the Adult, Ladies or Juvenile Committees if you have an interest in this position
