SAFEGUARDING AND CHILD PROTECTION
We have a safeguarding and welfare team who are the main points of contact and lead on all aspects of safeguarding at Bowdon Hockey Club. These are:
Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the team for more information or to discuss any concerns or contact Will Tyler directly by emailing: [email protected]
We expect all adults or young leaders age 16 or over (paid coaches or volunteers) who are involved with coaching, managing or supporting U18 players to have a DBS check. These are co-ordinated by our DBS Officer, Tony Hall, who can be reached via [email protected]
You can find out more about what is required in a DBS check here: ENGLAND HOCKEY DBS CHECK INFORMATION
