It is recommended that all clubs should appoint a designated Children’s Officer. It is also recommended that the CCO is not the Head Coach in the Club.
This Safeguarding 1 ‘Child Welfare and Protection in Sport’ training is a 3 hour basic awareness course, looking at how we can keep adults and young people safe and happy within the club environment. This course is open to sports leaders, coaches, parents, children’s officers and other adults involved in the organisation of sport for young people. This module will help to create and maintain a safe and fun environment for young people within the sports club or organisation.
A Club Children’s Officer should be child centred in focus and have as the primary aim the establishment of a child centred ethos within the club. S/he is the link between the children and the adults in the club.
