WKGB Ltd is committed to providing a caring, friendly, and safe environment for all our athletes so that they can train and play in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.
Travelling to competitions and events away from home should be both safe and fun for our athletes (which includes all young people under the age of 18). It should be a chance for all athletes to grow in confidence, self-esteem, and skills.
Parents and carers will nearly always worry when their children are away but careful planning and preparation should help to ease those worries and demonstrate that WKGB has taken into account the various needs of their children and the potential dangers of a trip away.
The WKGB Ltd follows the following Good Practice:
WKGB will provide the following information is to parents/carers:
