The Code of Ethics & Good Practice for Children’s Sport in Ireland is for the benefit of everyone involved in children’s sport. By following the principles, policy and practice guidelines contained in the Code, adult sport leaders are playing their part in providing an enjoyable and safe environment in which children can learn and thrive.
The Code of Ethics & Good Practice for Children’s Sport is built upon a number of core principles relating to the importance of childhood, the needs of the child, integrity and fair play, and relationships and safety in children’s sport. It addresses issues relating to the roles and responsibilities of all involved in children’s sport, and underpins the importance of policies and procedures in providing quality leadership for children in sport. It outlines principles of good practice and child protection policy and procedures.
The full application of the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport by everyone in sport will help to ensure the promotion of happy, healthy and successful experiences for children and their Sports Leaders.
