Respect Initiative Games
Tuesday, 27 March 2012 20:42

The GAA through its Coaching & Games has promoted a respect initiative among young players since 2010. During half-time in the Kerry vs Laois match last weekend, two games were played that embraced and demonstrated what is involved.

How does it work?
• Players and coaches line up behind their manager before and after the game to shake hands with the referee, opposing players and coaches
• Referees communicate decisions to players in an effective manner
• Each unit must strive to achieve maximum participation for all players
• Players from all backgounds are encouraged and given the opportunity to take part in Gaelic Games

The players that lined out during the game are as follows:
