Blackrock A.C. Child Safeguarding Policy
The Parents/Guardians and Young Athletes will, upon registration with Blackrock Athletic Club and renewal of their membership annually, undertake to abide by and support Blackrock Athletic Club’s Child Safeguarding Policy and in doing so agree to abide by the:
- Code of Conduct for Children & Young Athletes
- The Code of Conduct for Parents/Guardians
- The Juvenile Club Rules
We would particularly like to draw your attention to the:
- Film & Photography Policy and Guidelines
- Communication & Online safety Policy
- Code of Conduct for Officials
- Coaches and Volunteers
- Anti-Bullying Policy
All of these policies can be found on Blackrock A.C. Policies & Procedures page and we encourage you to read them carefully.
Please detail in writing to Blackrock A.C. by email and directly to your child’s coach any important medical information that our coaches/junior coaches should be aware of, e.g., epilepsy, asthma, diabetes, heart conditions, allergies, etc.
It is essential for your child’s safety that coaches are fully aware and have been informed of your child’s medical conditions and it is your responsibility to do so. Coaches change so you must ensure your child’s coaches have been informed.
This must be done as well as completing the medical consent section on Clubforce App.
Please also detail any additional needs your child may have and/or any additional support he/she may require from our club coaches. Please also provide other information on other issues that could affect your child’s performance e.g. previous injuries, dyspraxia, etc.
