The Association is proud of the progress that we have made this year especially with regards to introducing a minimum age for participating in senior shinty. This highlights that we take our duty of care towards the youngsters in our sport very seriously and we welcome the support of our member clubs on this matter. Of course, with the good comes the bad, we are disappointed that we were unable to reach the 25 votes needed to introduce helmets to our game. Between the CA’s proposal and GUSC’s there was enough support for the introduction of helmets, unfortunately individually these did not manage to reach the threshold. We are glad that there seems to be sufficient support for the introduction of helmets in general and hopefully we can work with our member clubs to get something passed next year that ensures the safety of all competing within our sport. The Camanachd Association wants to hear what rule changes YOU want to happen in shinty. If you have any suggestions please fill in this Google Form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdHj3t_WGv_w6TYfVfEwYLqO3e5NFSNXBqBMg6_FExT-e1QGQ/viewform?usp=sf_link . We exist at the behest of our members and all competent suggestions will be considered.
