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 has grown so quickly.
The club has in place a register to ensure that all coaches and helpers are DBS checked as quickly as possible. A copy of this can be requested by any parent by contacting Elaine Bramley; Child Welfare Officer at email@example.com
