Steps to be Followed for Setting Up a New Club

To set up a new club all coaches need to be Garda vetted or (vetting application pending)with the IABA and then sit at the very least a Level 1 Coaching course run by the Provincial Councils.

A Child Protection Officer must be appointed, this person must also be Garda vetted (or Garda Vetting pending) and have completed a Child Protection Program.

These courses are Run by Sport Ireland through the Provincial Councils.

To be affiliated with the Irish Athletic Boxing Association and to be insured in participating in training and boxing events you will need to fill out an the affiliation form and forward a cheque for €665 to your County Board. This cheque covers insurance for the year and administration costs for Provincial Council, County Board and National Boxing Council.

Secretaries of all the County Boards and Provincial Councils can be found within the ‘CLUB ZONE’ section on the website.
