Young children on court

In this section we have included several guidelines to assist coaches in issues of child protection.

All coaches, irrespective of the age and level at which they coach, should make themselves aware of child protection laws and guidelines.

It is particularly important to observe the best practices in your particular nation, as procedures and policies for child protection may vary across nations.

Anyone seeking to find out more on this topic is encouraged to contact their National Association for more details. To view the PDF documents on this page, click on the appropriate link below.
