It is a legal requirement that anybody working in a voluntary capacity with children must first be Garda Vetted through the FAI. Garda Vetting application forms are available from the Club Child Protection Officer or the website of the FAI. You can also download the form here
In addition, a Volunteer Registration form must be completed. These are available from the Volunteer Coordinator Team.
If you recruit somebody to help with your team, that person MUST be approved by the Executive Committee in advance. As with all volunteers they must first go through the Garda Vetting process.
Please note: If you are not Garda Vetted through the FAI, you should not undertake any work in a paid or voluntary capacity with children or vulnerable persons in football in accordance with FAI Rule 75 and the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016.
