RIVERSIDE AQUATIC CLUB MEMBER PROTECTION POLICY

 

Jan 2015 

Child Protection

RAC is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people accessing our club. We support the rights of the child and will act without hesitation to ensure a child safe environment is maintained at all times. We also support the rights and wellbeing of our members and volunteers and encourage their active participation in building and maintaining a secure environment for all participants.

RAC acknowledges that members and volunteers provide a valuable contribution to the positive experiences of children involved in our sport. RAC aims to continue this and to take measures to protect the safety and welfare of children participating in our sport by ensuring:

All RAC committee members and coaches will become registered as required by the Registration to Work with Vulnerable People Act 2013 (WVP Act).

Members under the age of 16 must be supervised at all times by a two persons registered under WVP Act.

Parents/guardians are responsible for transporting their child/children to and from club activities. Where our club makes arrangements for the transportation of children (e.g. for away or overnight trips), we will conduct a risk assessment that includes ensuring vehicles are adequately insured, the driver has a current and appropriate licence for the vehicle being used and appropriate safety measures are available (e.g. fitted working seatbelts).

Should a parent/guardian be late for pick-up a person registered under the WVP Act shall remain with the child/children until the parent/guardian arrives.

A standard agenda will be included at RAC committee meetings requiring attending committee members to verify that compliance to this section.

Complaint Processes

All complaints will be dealt with under policies and procedures of Swimming Tasmania and/or Swimming Australia.
