THE GAA WILL launch their Covid-19 education programme for clubs around the country in the coming days as the countdown continues to the planned return to action.

Last Friday the GAA, Camogie Association and LGFA mapped out their schedule for holding training sessions and matches again. Small groups can train on pitches from 29 June with club fixtures set to commence in late July before the inter-county action resumes in mid October.

It is envisaged for training that players will arrive and depart togged out while a health questionnaire must be completed before starting a session.

Central to the return to action will be the Covid-19 club education programme which will centre on an eLearning module and key protocols such as the health questionnaire will be outlined in more detail.

The GAA intend to focus their programme for clubs on:

  1. Facilities readiness
  2. The role of the Covid supervisor (collates health questionnaires, permits entry, keeps record for potential contact tracing) 
  3. Protocols for participation
  4. The Gaelic Games roadmap document
