The GAA has introduced a new Games Management System, called Foireann, which is Irish for Team. This is a development from last years Return To Play system.
Foireann introduces new features for Clubs and Members including:
– Register yourself and/or family members with Arklow Rock Parnells GAA / Camogie online.
– Update your own and/or family information at anytime so that contact details, etc are up to date.
– Training and Team information will be sent out on Foireann eliminating the need for other apps such as WhatsApp.
If you are already registered on the Return To Play, your login will work with Foireann. For all new players you will need to register. Parents /Guardians need to register for all players under the age of 18. Players of all ages will need to be registered on Foireann to complete Health questionnaires to be covid compliant and able to get back on the pitch when play resumes.
A Quick Guide sheet on using Foireann can be accessed here: ARP Foireann User Guide
All players must register with the club at the beginning of the season to partake in any match. Costs are as follows:
Social Members support the club and have full access to all Club events.
Each Team will collect a monthly subscriptions from each player at the first Saturday of each month at training. Subs can be paid in advance annually with registration.
€10 per month if paid monthly
€60 per season if paid with registration online or in the club
If these times clash with any other activity let your coach know and we will work something out.
