It is the responsibility of Atherstone Hockey Club to take child welfare very seriously. We want to ensure the well-being of children is of the upmost importance so they can take part in hockey in a safe environment.

The attached document outlines our responsibilities as a Club and gives guidance, in accordance with England Hockey's recommendations, for coaches, players, volunteers, parents and helpers. Section B should be read in conjunction with the England Hockey regulations.
