Player Welfare

The player is central to the GAA and all its activities. The skill and dedication of our players at all levels have captured the imagination of the public since the founding of the GAA and have been fundamental to the on-going success of the Association. The welfare of players is therefore of paramount importance to the GAA and its future success. During the development of the GAA’s Strategic Plan and Vision, a key objective was the enhancement of the experience of all our players within the Association.
