To devise and implement a safe working practice for coaches and volunteers working with young people and young people.
Thatto Heath Crusaders ARLFC, in conjunction with the Rugby Football League and Social Services, want to make sure that all players, (Young Persons), are protected and kept safe whilst they are in the care of officials representing this Club.
We will do this by:
Adopting and adhering to the Rugby Football League Child Protection Policy and Procedures. The Club will also be bound by the decisions and recommendations of the Rugby Football League Child Protection Disciplinary Committees.
Making sure that all officials are carefully selected, vetted and where necessary trained. Ensuring that all persons with the potential to abuse young people are properly CRB checked.
Ensuring that details of any player’s medical condition are notified to the relevant officials.
Giving parents and players information about the Club’s aims and ambitions and what they can expect from the Club.
Advising parents of what the Club can expect from them.
Ensuring parents and players know how to voice their concerns or complain if there is anything that they are not happy about.
For the purposes of the Rugby League Child Protection Policy, young people are under 18 years of age (S.Cummings – Technical Executive, October 2002 and RL CPP 2003).
