I am a coach for a ladies team, should I register for LGFA/Camogie or GAA?
Any male or a non-playing female involved in coaching should select GAA. A female coach who is also a player should register membership appropriately as LGFA or Camogie.
I am a female non-playing member, should I select GAA or LGFA?
All male and female non-players should select GAA. LGFA & Camogie membership is only for female playing members.
I have paid my membership but some of my family have an amber tab next to their name whilst others have green. Have I done something wrong?
No, everything is fine. LGFA member profiles are amber until the fees due to the LGFA are paid by the club. Everyone in your family is a registered member.
