Club Constitution

Each year the Club’s constitution is ratified by its members at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The following constitution was adopted and agreed by Aces Netball Club at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of 1 April 2019 as a current operating guide regulating the actions of the club and its members.

Safeguarding

All adults connected with the club have a statutory duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of young and vulnerable people in netball. Safeguarding children goes much wider than simply protecting them from neglect and abuse. It is also about keeping them safe from accidents, crime, bullying and actively promoting their welfare in a healthy and safe environment. Being involved in sport can bring many positives to a person and it is also an environment where young people can find friends and role models.We want our young people to get the most they can from their involvement in the sport and in order for this to happen we provide guidance for all volunteers, adults members and parents linked to the club.

All club members responsible for groups of young people (undertaking regulated activity) i.e. Team Managers, Coaches and Committee Members have up to date DBS checks in place.

The club’s Designated Safeguarding Lead [DSL] and Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO) Sharron Lewis Burke – Head Coach.

England Netball also provides guidance through the ENjoy, ENtrust, ENsure pages of the their website to help recognise and respond to the most frequently occurring issues and sign-posts to the numerous support organisations which can provide the expert help needed with the complex issues facing young people today. Organisations which are accessible to young people are included so that they have the option to take action to help themselves, or if you are a young netballer needing some help we encourage you to use them.
