Safe Guarding Advice Tips
It is extremely important that permission should be obtained from parents, guardians or carers of any young person under the age of 18 years who is wishing to join a club or team of adults, or people over 18 years of age.
Both the club or team, and the parents, guardians and carers have a right and a responsibility to make sure that children within their care are safe at all times.
A Good Club should have the below:
Have a trained Child (Club) Safeguarding Officer.
Have adopted the BSUK Safeguarding Policy or have its own Child Protection Policy.
Ensure that and volunteers or coaches that work with young people have been suitably checked ie DBS Disclosure
Have a written code of conduct for team officials working with young people.
Have qualified coaches.
Have adopted the BSUK Equality Policy.
Have a complaints procedure.
Welcome any questions a parent, guardian or carer may wish to ask about the club or team.
Will have achieved or be attempting BSUK Club Accreditation.
Parents, guardian’s and carers should have concern if a club or team:
Discourages them from watching or becoming involved.
Encourages rough play, humiliating punishments or sexual innuendo
Do not follow the rules of baseball or softball.
Encourage favouritism, personal reward or inappropriate physical contact.
Have poor communications with parents, guardian’s or carers.
Have their young person drop out for no apparent reason.
