Club Constitution: adopted 14/1/19
Safeguarding Policy (including contact details for the club welfare officers). The club has adopted the Safeguarding and protecting children policy of its National Governing Body, namely British Triathlon (BTF). For more information see the Safeguarding section of the BTF website.
Equity Policy. The club respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status. To this end the club has adopted the equity policy as recommended by Sport England.
Anti-Bullying Policy. The club is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment in which all individuals can take part in triathlon, enabling both training and competing to be undertaken in relaxed and secure surroundings. The Club expects any individual who is aware of bullying occurring to immediately inform a club officer.
Whistleblowing Policy. If you think something’s wrong, say so – preferably to the club coach, volunteer or committee member who is the easiest to contact. The club policy is that you will be listened to with respect and that all concerns will be taken seriously; all reasonable steps will be taken to treat what you say confidentially if so wanted.
Supporting clean sport. All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. British Triathlon are dedicated to the clean sport mission as indicated by their Clean Sport Commitment Statement. The club fully supports this program and in particular expects its members to play, train and compete, and its coaches and volunteers to perform their role, both in line with the spirit of sport, including the Anti-Doping Rules.
Policy re medical conditions and injuries. This sets out how the club and member should work together to ensure club sessions are safe for the member to participate in. In brief, the club will do its best to ensure the safety of all but we do need the member to ensure that the lead coach at any session has been informed about any significant conditions and/or injuries.
Social media guidelines. These apply to all club coaches, volunteers, and members. Social media provides the club with a zero cost means of disseminating information but it is important that the club and its members use social media responsibly and safely. The guidelines have been produced by Sport Scotland and have been adopted in their entirety.
