  • Take care of equipment used or owned by the club
  • Not use bad language or take part in inappropriate or illegal behaviour
  • Not bully anyone or pressure them into doing things they do not want to, including online
  • Anticipate and be responsible for my own needs including being organised, having the appropriate equipment and being on time
  • notify a responsible adult if I have to go somewhere (why, where and when I will return)
  • not respond if someone seeks private information, unrelated to athletics e.g. home / school life
  • Not carry or consume alcohol or illegal substances
  • Use safe transport or travel arrangements
  • speak out immediately if anything makes me concerned or uncomfortable (telling parents / carers and /or the Club Welfare Officer) or if a club mate has suffered from misconduct by someone else.
  • Report any accidental injury, distress, misunderstanding or misinterpretation to my parents/carers and/or the Club Welfare officer as soon as possible.
  • I understand that if I do not follow this code of conduct my parent/carer will be informed and action can be taken by my Club
