If You Have Any Concerns

Regarding the training of progress of your child – we ask that you speak firstly to your child’s Head Coach. The Club Manager is also available to deal with any concerns. If you are unhappy or do not feel comfortable approaching either of the above, please speak to the Club Welfare Officer.

Regarding a specific concern or incident – please note down the date time and circumstances surrounding your concern and report to a Head Coach, the Club Manager or Welfare Officer as soon as possible.
