Child Protection in Sport

You can help to make sure your child is safe when they are being coached by taking an interest in the sports club. By keeping in contact with the coach and the club and you will be better able to protect your child from any harm.

Things you can do:

  • Listen to your child

  • Observe their behaviour

  • Observe their physical appearance

If you have concerns:

If you have concerns find someone at the sports club you can talk to. If your concern is about the coach, you need to be aware of someone else at the sports club you could speak to.

Policies & procedures:

The club should have policies and procedures to cover all aspects of health and safety, including safeguarding children and child protection; make sure you have a copy.
