"The GAA membership year runs from January 1st – December 31st. It is compulsory that playing members and mentors are registered before resuming training or participating in games. If an injury claim is notified to Willis Towers Watson and the claimant is not in the membership system at the date of his claim or is registered after the injury date, the claim will be declined. Claims for unregistered members will be declined as the GAA Injury Benefit Fund is in place to benefit registered members only."
Therefore all players who have returned to training need to ensure the register now. In addition, all club managers are requested to return current squad lists to games secretary to enable us to cross-check. Please indicate where there are new players who have joined squads this year.
