Safe Recruitment Policy – Riverside Tennis Club
- Advertising: Riverside Tennis Club uses appropriate ways to advertise for volunteers, through the Clubhouse notice board, email, newsletters and other informal channels, guided by the principles promoted by the LTA regarding safe recruitment.
- Selection: Potential volunteers meet with a member of the Committee to discuss suitability for the role and to ensure their clear understanding of the Club’s commitment to a safe and inclusive tennis environment. The selection process aims to ensure that volunteers have the right skills for the role allocated and will support our aim to provide a safe, inclusive and fun environment for all our members and visitors.
- Criminal Records checks: Riverside Tennis Club follows LTA safe recruitment and best practice guidance, ensuring that everyone who works unsupervised with children, young adults and at-risk adults has an enhanced criminal records check. Riverside wants to ensure these groups are safe from harm and have an enjoyable tennis experience.
- Coaches’ qualifications: all our coaches are LTA accredited
- To help create a safe and inclusive tennis environment for all children and adults, the Club has a Welfare Officer who has attended the relevant LTA Safeguarding training and has the relevant skills to undertake the role. Information about the Welfare Officer is prominently displayed on Riverside’s notice board and website.
- All Riverside’s volunteers, coaches and members are bound by its Safeguarding Policy and its Code of Conduct.
