Give Respect – Get Respect is an awareness campaign that seeks to ensure that Gaelic Games are promoted and played in a positive, fair and enjoyable manner and where Players, Coaches, Spectators and Referees

Give Respect – Get Respect from each other

The RESPECT campaign applies at all levels and amongst all players regardless of age, competition or ability.

The key participants in the Give Respect – Get Respect campaign are not just the Players themselves but Coaches, Clubs, Parents, Referees and Supporters.

The Give Respect – Get Respect initiative is supported by the International National Governing Bodies of our member organisations; the Gaelic Athletic Association, Ladies Gaelic Football Association and the Camogie Association.

The Respect campaign highlights the following good practices:​

  1. All players and coaches shake hands with their opponents and the referee before and after each game.
  2. Mark out a designated spectators’ area around the playing area.
  3. At relevant underage categories teams should strive to achieve the maximum participation of all players in accordance with agreed playing models.
  4. The host Club should welcome referees and opposing teams to all games.
  5. Adopt and implement the Gaelic Games Council of Britain’s Codes as the minimum level of agreement between the Club, County and players, coaches, parents, guardians and supporters at underage level.
