Safety & Welfare
Coaches to ensure juniors are escorted, use pedestrian crossings, and walk through car parks.
Senior members are to take individual due care and consideration of traffic when crossing roads.
Be aware of people in parked cars who may open doors onto pavements without looking.
The use of audio equipment with earphones is NOT permitted during club training or races as these devices inhibit the user from hearing traffic approaching from behind and warnings from others.
For any welfare issues, contact Emma Greaves at:
