Child Safeguarding

The Irish Ice Hockey Association recognise the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. The Irish Ice Hockey Association is committed to ensuring that safeguarding practice reflects the statutory responsibilities, Government guidance and complies with Sport Ireland requirements. Each of our clubs are committed to implementing our Code of Ethics and Good Practice, which aims to foster a culture of understanding and compliance for all and to create a child centred environment for our young players to develop and grow within sport.

We confirm that our organisation complies with The Governance Code for the Community, Voluntary, and Charitable Sector in Ireland.
