Our Guiding Principles
Our vision of Handball is of a game for life, where people of all ages can enjoy the physical benefits of participation, whether playing competitively, for fun, or as a means of social interaction with their local community.
Our mission is to promote our games, our leagues, our championships and our activities in a way that enriches the lives of our members. We are committed to active lifelong participation for all members of society and we promote individual development and well-being so that all members achieve their full potential in their chosen role.
We will oversee the implementation of the relevant Child Welfare Codes and Guidelines for good practice in all Clubs so that young people can participate, enjoy and benefit from our Gaelic Games in safe and enjoyable surroundings.
