Wavepower 2016-19: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs
Wavepower 2016–19 is the latest Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Child Safeguarding Policies and Procedures publication which replaces all previous versions.
It has been produced to assist in safeguarding and protecting children in our sport and must be adopted by all ASA affiliated clubs and organisations.
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.
This publication will be fully updated in 2020, but if any new guidance or policy changes are released prior to this, then pages will be updated or added to the Swim England website
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 Officer is Becky who can be contacted on email@example.com

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:
THE DAY TO DAY RUNNING OF THE CLUB
OFFICIATING AT MEETS AND GALAS
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.
