Young people’s involvement in sport is a key component to their physical and emotional development. Sixty percent of Athletics Ireland members are under the age of eighteen. As a sport we must ensure that children’s early experiences are positive and enjoyable, irrespective of their ability, gender, social class and race.
Our coaches & volunteers deliver these positive experiences each week as role models in their dealings with young people. In particular, the work of the Club Children’s Officers is instrumental in implementing our safeguarding statement, the Ardee & District A.C. Code of Ethics.
We will continue to build on this excellent work to ensure that all young people see their involvement in athletics as a valuable and rewarding part of their lives, for all of their lives.
