The club places a high emphasis on child welfare and child protection. We believe we have created a safe environment where the children can have a lot of fun and it’s the main reason why the club is one of the largest in the country.
All of our training sessions are run by British Triathlon qualified coaches and the Club holds a British Triathlon Bronze TriMark Accreditation. The Club has a register in place to ensure coaches and helpers have the necessary DBS checks in place. A number of our coaches have relevant first aid qualifications. All accidents and injuries are recorded and parents/carers notified.
To further help us keep you safe, we also ask that you keep your emergency contact details up to date and that you let us know if there is any change to medical conditions.
Any concerns regarding safeguarding should be directed to our Junior Club Welfare Officers on the email address below; Sarah Herbert or Abby Brockwell; email@example.com
The club fully adopts the key principles of the British Triathlon Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy which can be downloaded here.
