Club welfare information
At ITC Juniors we want everyone to train in a fun, happy and safe environment. Here is ITC Juniors’ Enjoying Training and Feeling Safe document that we ask every member to read.
We also have a number of documents that we ask new members to sign and return and returning members to refresh their knowledge of. You will find these below.
We abide by British Triathlon’s Safeguarding Policy and its Equality and Diversity Policy, and all our documents are taken from this. They apply our members whenever they are training, competing or wearing ITC kit.
Here is a welcome letter from our Junior Team to you, which describes how we protect the welfare of our junior members.
If you have any queries or concerns at all then you can contact our Welfare Officer via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Codes of Conduct
Members code of conduct: we expect exceptional behaviour and conduct from all members at all times. All members must sign and return a copy of the member’s code of conduct when they join.
We also have a code of conduct for parents and carers. We expect our members to enjoy training and competing and the adults who support the young athletes are expected to support us in fulfilling this role. Parents of new members must sign and return a copy of the code of conduct for parents and carers when their child joins.
The coaches also have a coaches’ code of conduct and ethics that they abide by. In order to safeguard members and coaches, none of our coaches are able to coach private one-to-one sessions with members, so please do not ask if your child can receive additional coaching as this is something we cannot offer.
Finally, all our club officers and volunteers follow their own code of conduct for club officers and volunteers. We expect all parents/carers to help us during training when requested. Therefore, all parents/carers should also be familiar with this document. Thank you.
We like to share our successes and we have a website and a closed Facebook page, where we like to include photographs with our posts. We also like to use video in our training. Before we can do these things, we need your permission. Please complete this photography form and return it to us as soon as possible.
When you join, you provide medical information as part of your online application. Please use this medical information update form for any subsequent changes to your circumstances. This includes changes in mobile phone numbers for emergencies.
