Coaching Children

BADMINTONscotland is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of children, and to that end has produced a Child Protection Policy and Guidelines aimed at supporting member clubs and 10 Steps to Safeguard Children in Sport can be downloaded by clicking here.

BADMINTONscotland has also produced a series of appendices which can be downloaded individually and cover subjects such as self declaration, medical consent, incident reporting etc. These forms are design to assist clubs, organisers and coaches with some of the administration which may be required during the season.

BADMINTONscotland will only engage coaches who are prepared to adopt 'best practice' as outlined in the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct has been extracted from the Child and Vulnerable Adult protection policy and should be adhered to by all coaches.

Most coaches are perfectly proper in their dealings with children and the code should merely be confirmation of existing good practice. We are supportive of BADMINTONscotland's position on this issue. We appreciate that the policy and procedures will protect our own position in the unlikely event that issue is taken with our actions.

If you have concerns about a Child Protection or Vulnerable Adult issue the following link may help you find the most suitable organisation or contact details to assist:

or you can contact BADMINTONscotland's Child Protection Officer via the office 0141 445 1218.

Good Practice & Child Protection Workshops
This 3-hour workshop is suitable for coaches and volunteers who may come in to contact with children. This workshop explores the Code of Conduct for those in contact with children and provides basic information on recognising child abuse and responding to concerns. A link to a timetable of workshops across the country can be found here.

Stay Safe & Have Fun in Sport is a new leaflet from Children 1st for children and young people to raise awareness about their right to be safe while playing sport.  It suggests where children and young people can find help and support if they are worried about something. Stay Safe and Have Fun in Sport has been written and designed with the help of children and young people. Suitable for all children and young people 10 years and over and can be downloaded here to distribute to young people.
