Safeguarding and Welfare

Team Bath Buccaneers Hockey Club (TBBHC) adopts England Hockey’s Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Hockey Policy, Equality Policy and Code of Ethics and Behaviour (Respect)and works in accordance with the policy contained in these documents.

Every individual and organisation within the Hockey Family has a role and responsibility to help ensure the safety and welfare of young people.

TBBHC as a provider of opportunities for young people in hockey accepts that we are required to fulfil our duty of care which means that we must do everything that can be reasonably expected of us to help safeguard and protect young people from any reasonably foreseeable harm.

In providing hockey coaching for children and young people under 18 years of age, TBBHC recognises its responsibility to have a nominated Club Welfare Officer.

Rachael Webb is registered with England Hockey as the Club Welfare Officer and is the first point of contact for coaches, managers, players, volunteers, parents and U18s should there be any concerns about child welfare, poor practice or child abuse.

Club Safeguarding Policy

The Club’s Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Young People Policy can be found below:

Disclosure and Barring Checks

All those who regularly work with U18s within the Club will have to hold a current DBS for the Club through England Hockey. This is done through our Welfare Officer.

For more information on England Hockey’s guidance on DBS checks please click on the link below:

  • EH-DBS-Check-Information.pdf


With around 500 Junior members, TBBHC takes the care and wellbeing of young people extremely seriously and complies with the England Hockey Safeguarding ‘SAFE D’ policies. All Managers and Coaches for Junior teams are DBS checked, as well as all Managers and Coaches in Senior teams as many Senior teams have junior (13 years plus) players.

Changing Room Policy for Juniors Playing in Adult Teams

Juniors aged 13 years and above can be selected to play in Senior Teams. As such they will share changing facilities with adult team members at home and away fixtures. If a parent/guardian of an under 18 player does not wish their child to change with the adult players in the team then their parent/guardian must inform the Senior Team Manager. The under 18 must then be given the opportunity to change separately to the adult members of the team. By authorising juniors to play in adult teams, parents and/or guardians are agreeing to the Changing Room Policy. The safe enforcement of the Changing Room Policy will require good and continued communication between the parents/guardians, the Senior Team Manager and the under 18 player.

All parties should be mindful that what is appropriate for a 17 year old, may not be appropriate for a 13 year old.

If any junior, Senior Team Manager or parent/guardian has any concerns about the above policy, please do not hesitate to contact the Child Welfare Officer, Rachael Webb.
