CODE OF ETHICS
Renmore Hockey Code of Ethics
Renmore Ladies Hockey is fully committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of its participants. Every individual in hockey should at all times, show respect and understanding for participants' rights, safety and welfare and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the organisation and the guidelines contained in the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children's Sport. In working with young people in hockey our first priority is their welfare and we are committed to providing an environment that will allow participants to perform to the best of their ability, free from abuse, neglect, bullying and intimidation. Renmore's child welfare policy, the Code of Ethics for Hockey for Young People, contains Codes of Conduct (for Sports Leaders, young people and parents), a recruitment policy, guidelines for travelling, supervision and physical contact along with guidelines for recognising and reporting child protection concerns.
