Ethics & Welfare
Gymnastics Ireland is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for young people who participate in our activities, which reflects the guidelines contained in our Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport.

We aim to provide gymnastics opportunities for all ages and levels of ability. We aim to develop gymnastics in Ireland from the basic participation, fun and recreational levels through to competitive levels to the highest standards.
Coaches, Parents and Administrators all have a role to play in promoting good practice at the various levels of Gymnastics Ireland. The safety and welfare of every young gymnast is paramount. We hope that the guidelines and procedures outlined in the code will add to the existing good practice being applied in Clubs and furthermore ensure that good practice is applied at all levels of Irish Gymnastics.
