enjoyable time whilst playing soccer for Ballinasloe Town both home and away, that is
why the club is fully supportive of the Football Association of Ireland's Child Welfare

To facilitate our adoption of these guidelines we also have a dedicated Child Welfare Officer
based at the club who can be contacted if you have any queries relating to your child's
experiences at Ballinasloe Town AFC.
