Safeguarding in Snowsport
Snowsport England strives to ensure all children and young people have the right to be safe and enjoy their involvement in Snowsport.
Everyone who is involved in Snowsport has a shared responsibility to support this by promoting the welfare of all children and young people. Safeguarding in Snowsport is based upon providing an enjoyable environment that meets the needs and requirements of children. A welcoming environment where children are asked for, and are able to offer their views and opinions (for example about their training, competitions etc) is a safer environment where children feel more able to challenge poor practice or behaviour and share their concerns.
All clubs, academies, associations and individuals are bound by Snowsport England’s Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy, Snow Safe. These organisations have a duty to safeguard and protect children and our safeguarding policies will help support them to ensure they meet this requirement. Our policy shows a commitment to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people involved in our sport.
