The welfare of young people (and vulnerable adults) is of paramount importance to the club and children have the right to protection from abuse.

All young people who take part in triathlon should be able to participate in a fun and safe environment.

  • All reasonable practical steps to protect children from harm, discrimination and degrading treatment and respects their rights, wishes and feelings should be in place.
  • All suspicions and allegations of poor practice or abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • High standards of behaviour and practice are demanded through compliance with the British Triathlon Coaches' Codes of Conduct.
  • Everyone knows and accepts their responsibilities and works together to achieve this common goal of protecting children: parents, triathletes, coaches, team managers, volunteers and professional staff.
  • Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is taken into consideration when planning and delivering sessions, and that children will progress through the British Triathlon approved framework that matches training needs to a child's growth and development.
