Children under the age of 6 can only take part in these Sunday morning sessions if they are accompanied at all times by their parent. Also, please ensure that your children do bring appropriate protective equipment, in particular, shin pads – mouth guards are recommended.
I would also like to remind parents that on rare occasions due to other hockey commitments, we cannot always guarantee organised supervision for all our juniors age groups during the Sunday morning slot at the Astroturf. In light of this, please, before leaving your child/children, ensure that the appropriate coaching staff are in attendance. In the event of you child not having supervision please enquire as to whether they might join another age group (child age and numbers permitting) or that failing this, assume that the session is not running and that your child will not be supervised. If this arises we cannot take responsibility for your child’s well-being. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience such situations may cause but despite having a committed and motivated coaching staff, it is not always possible to plan for the unexpected. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
It is important that the coaches know whether your child is currently suffering from, has recently suffered from or developed any injury, illness or medical condition that may be affected by or affect their participation in hockey. Please also indicate here if your child is receiving medication with details and dosage, and / or has any specific dietary requirements. This information will be shared with coaches and other appropriate staff, therefore it is not confidential. Please ensure that if there are any changes to this information, managers / trainers are advised accordingly.
Child Protection Policy
Eastcote Hockey Club fully supports England Hockey Child Protection Policy. A copy of the clubs policy on this issue is on our website under the Juniors section.
We expect parents of those children aged under 8 to be present during coaching sessions. Parents/carers are advised that, at the end of each training session, they or a nominated responsible adult must promptly collect their child(ren) (under 11) from the pitches, as we do not want them to be unsupervised in the car park or Kings College Road. If a child is not collected after a training session or match, the coach(es) will contact the parents/carers on the telephone number(s) on the club's records. If the parents cannot be contacted, the coach(es) will not leave the child(ren) unsupervised and will, if necessary, advise the club's Child Protection Officer of the situation.
When Juniors teams attend away fixtures and tournaments, it is the parent's or carer's responsibility to make arrangements and ensure that their child(ren) has a lift to and from the other club and, if necessary, collection from Eastcote Hockey Club on their return. It is preferable that parents/carers attend matches and tournaments with their children, in particular u14s .When parents arrange for a third party to provide transport for their child(ren), they should inform the coach(es) before leaving Eastcote HC of the name of their child(ren) and the name and contact telephone numbers of both parties, so that they can be contacted if necessary, and the coach(es) should make a note of such arrangements and information.
If it is not possible for such arrangements to be made for any given match or tournament, then Eastcote HC regrets that a child(ren) may not be able to attend the fixture/tournament, as the hockey club and the coach(es) cannot take responsibility for the child(ren)'s well-being.
Please note: It is not the responsibility of Eastcote Hockey Club or the Eastcote coach(es) to act in loco parentis. The coach's role is to organise and manage the team(s) chosen to represent the hockey club. When taking a team to away fixtures and tournaments, the coach(es) should ensure that arrangements have been made so each child (not accompanied by their parent/carer and not travelling in the club's minibus - u14s/u16s) has a return lift to Eastcote HC.
The clubs coaches will take photographs or video at some tournaments of the team and these may be published on the Clubs website. The consent form confirms your agreement to this , but if you have any questions or objections please let your coach know immediately.
