I want to remind everyone about the drop-off and pick-up policy that we have in place at our club for junior members. You will recognise that it is extremely similar to policies that schools and other junior clubs have in place to ensure that your child is safe when arriving and leaving each of our sessions. If you've not read it before, or need a refresher, then you can read it on our website.
Over the past few weeks I've noticed an increase in the number of children that are being collected from our sessions in a manner that is putting them at risk. Please note that children should be waiting to be collected from inside the sports hall. They should not be waiting at reception, in the car park, or in any other location where our coaches are unable to supervise them.
Going forward we are going to have to be more strict about this and insist that parents / guardians come into the sports hall to collect their children. I realise this may come as an inconvenience for those who like their children to come out to them as they wait in the car park, but we believe it is necessary to ensure that our players leave our sessions safely.
If you have any questions, problems or would like to ask for exemption from this policy (e.g. you want your child to make their own way home) then please get in touch.
