Guidelines for taking Photographs
When Parents/guardians register their children as a member of Roscommon Gaels they are granting their consent for the possible taking and publication of photographs and video footage of their children in the promotion of the club. The photograph or recording should focus on the activity rather than on a particular young person. Group and team photographs may be taken but it is not necessary to match a player’s name. The photograph may appear with the player’s name recorded underneath but need not be in the order in which they appear in the photograph. It is recognised that on certain occasions individual young people may receive recognition and may be presented with an award. When this happens in the case of an underage player any such photography or recording of events that involves individual presentations should be discussed in advance of the event and agreement reached with the club and parents.
Taking photographs of players and using web sites and social media to publicise Roscommon Gaels and visual recordings of events, games, training and coaching sessions are normal activities in club life. A common sense approach is required when deciding what may or may not be appropriate as we do not wish to prohibit the advantage that this type of media can afford the club while adhering to best practice guidelines.

The challenge is to keep them engaged & challenged through other games. Too often kids are put through mundane, boring drills & they demand better from coaches. Kids’ asking for a match is a sign they are bored. Mix things up, put the match at the start of training for a change.
