Wavepower 2020-23: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs


Wavepower 2020–23 is the latest Swim England Child Safeguarding Policies and Procedures publication which replaces all previous versions.


The aim of Wavepower is to safeguard all children in line with current legislation, regulations and guidance and is for use within any Swim England affiliated organisation where children are present. 

Wavepower consistently emphasises that the responsibility for child safeguarding in our sport belongs with all those involved in our sports and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at local, county or national level.


Ensuring that children are safeguarded should be a key part of how our clubs and swim schools operate and helps to provide a safe, happy and fun environment in which children can learn to swim and develop their skills.


The responsibility to safeguard children does not belong to any one person, but instead belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering our sporting activities. Wavepower is intended for anyone involved in these activities and offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice.


Please click on the link below and you will be directed to the Wavepower page on the Swim England website where you are able to then download the full safeguarding document.


The Club's Welfare Officer is available to discuss any issues/concerns with regards to safeguarding and will deal with them under the guidance of Wavepower.

Our volunteer Welfare Office can be contacted on 

SwimLine - A Brisitsh Swimming Helpline associated with the NSPCC, specifically for swimmers is

The Success of Ryde Swimming Club Relies on Volunteers.


Our Aim: To spread the work load by continually seeking volunteers to assist with the following:




For Ryde Swimming Club to flourish it is essential to not depend on the same few volunteers. We need to continually evolve and encourage swimmers, parents and those with a passion for swimming to get involved. By doing this we won't stagnate and we can offer a club that is organised, enjoyable and successful for years to come.


If you would like to volunteer in some way, please speak with one of the coaches or contact us via the website. We can then discuss where your skills might be best utilised / what skills you might be interested in developing e.g. officiating. No previous experience is necessary just enthusiasm and a positive/friendly attitude.


For more information about officiating please click on the following button:


Ryde Swimming Club runs on a very tight budget, therefore to enable the club to purchase any equipment or fund any training we do require some additional support through fundraising. 


Throughout the year the committee will arrange fundraising events, so if you have any ideas please let us know. 


Additionally if you would like to fundraise for the club, that would be fantastic! 


Any contribution would be gratefully received and will really make a difference.
