Consider the welfare of participants before the development of performance.
Develop an appropriate working relationship with performers based on mutual trust and respect.
Hold appropriate, valid qualifications and insurance cover.

PARENTS & GUARDIANS
Parents and Guardians are expected to:
Encourage your child to participate without forcing them to take part.
Help your child to recognise good individual performance, not just competition results.
Lead by example in showing good sportsmanship and applauding all good performances.
Ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the activity and has plenty to drink.
Ensure coaches are aware of any illness or injury that may affect training.
Use correct and proper language at all times.
Never punish or belittle a child for poor performance or making mistakes.
We request that parents remain nearby if your child is aged 8 or younger.
Always collect your child promptly at the end of a session. If your child will be collected by somebody who does not normally pick them up, please make sure the coach in charge of the session is aware of this.
If you wish to raise and concern about any aspect of the club procedures or regarding a specific incident please contact the welfare and protection officer Nathaniel Keidan (contact details in the staff section on the home page).
No photography or video recording equipment including photo and video imaging phones may be used during training sessions.
Coaches and other club officials may employ photography or videos on occasion for the purposes of promoting the club or as a coaching aid. You will be given the chance to opt out of this when you become a member.
Please be aware that competition venues may have their own photography and imagery policies.
Imagery posted to social media may mention first names, but we will not tag minors in posts.
Trampoline Life abides by British Gymnastics policies. Should you have any queries regarding policies, or concerns about welfare issues please contact the Club Welfare Officer, Nathaniel Keidan.
