Development

Continuous improvement in performance is key to achieving high standards in the experience of playing, refereeing, coaching and mentoring Camogie. We will maintain and develop training and player welfare initiatives and work to develop and increase in the number of female coaches and referees. 

The Camogie Association will put in place the structures and programmes to significantly increase the number of players who will get the opportunity to play camogie either through their local club, school or third level education institution. 
 
In this section you will find comprehensive information detailing various areas of Camogie Development. We will keep you up to date with current policies, research and highlight best practice from around the country. Camogie currently has 7 full time development staff working with clubs, schools, colleges, county boards and provincial councils under the following 7 headings:
