Advice to young persons – keeping your child safe

Don’€™t keep it To Yourself!

You have the right to:

Have fun when playing hockey

Be safe when playing hockey

Enjoy your hockey

Make friends through hockey

Be treated with respect by adults involved in hockey

Are you worried?

My coach is bullying me

Another adult at hockey is bullying me

Another member of my team is bullying me

One of the coaches or volunteers is threatening me

An adult is making me do things which I know are wrong

Someone is touching me and making me feel uncomfortable

Someone is constantly teasing me, shouting at me or kicking me

Someone is making suggestive remarks or asking me to do thing

Someone is acting in a way which makes me feel lonely, upset unsafe

or embarrassed

If the answer is YES – Don’t keep it to yourself  Ask for help

Who can I talk to?

Talk to your Club Welfare Officer

It can sometimes be difficult to speak to an adult about how you are


You might think that an adult will not understand – THEY WILL ISTEN

You may think that they will not believe you – THEY WILL BELIEVE YOU

You may be scared that they will tell other people – THEY WILL ONLY TELL SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP

You might think they have not got time to talk to you – THEY WILL ALWAYS MAKE TIME TO TALK

It’€™s better to talk to someone:

 Ignoring your worries or concerns could make them worse

Talking to someone will begin to tackle your worries and concerns

You only have to share information that you want to share

Telling someone will begin to help you

What will happen if I talk to someone?

Your Club Welfare Officer will know what to do and how to help. They are safe and they will believe you

Your Child Protection Officers are:


Janet Fuller
