Safeguarding & Protecting Children
On behalf of Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club, I would like to welcome your child to the Club, either as a new Member or as an existing Member. The Club provides opportunities for young people to receive coaching and participate in competition. All coaching is by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people.
The Club is currently applying for the SafeGolf accreditation from England Golf. This is awarded to Clubs by England Golf when the Club is able to demonstrate that it meets the SafeGolf criteria as to playing programme; safeguarding and protecting children; sports equity and ethics and Club management. SafeGolf is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we are striving to provide a high quality and welcoming environment for young participants in the sport.
We welcome parents to all events and value your support. However, if you are unable to stay, please ensure that arrangements are made for your child to travel to and from practice sessions and matches, if they are not making their own way. If you are going to be late picking your child up, please contact either Peter Hammond on 404424, Sarah Hammond on 403217 (Option 2) or the Bar on 403217 (Option 3) and let them know.
You should have received the following forms to complete: Player Profile, Code of Conduct and Permission for Photographic images. If you are not sure if you have returned these forms, please let me know and I can check for you. For the safety of your child it is important that the Club is informed of any medical condition or allergies that may be relevant, should your child fall ill or be involved in an accident while at the Club.
If you would like to talk to someone at the Club about this information or your child’s involvement with the Club, please contact our Junior Welfare Officer, Sarah Hammond on 403217 (Option 2) or email her at [email protected].
We thank you for your cooperation and look forward to meeting you at some point in the future.
