NSPCC Safeguarding and Protecting Children – SportsCoach UK

The NSPCC SportsCoach UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop is designed for all for staff and volunteers working with children and young people in sport.

The course is ideal for all instructors and coaches working with juniors and youths at our sailing and windsurfing clubs. Course duration is three hours.

This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches to recognise signs of abuse and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children.
