England Squash & Racketball is firmly committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people to play squash. England Squash & Racketball accepts its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.
With this in mind, England Squash & Racketball has developed a Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Squash Policy, Procedures and Guidelines that will apply to all individuals involved, paid or in a voluntary capacity in Squash and will be phased in over time.
England Squash & Racketball recognises that everyone has a responsibility to safeguard and protect all young people.
To support the Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Squash, a number of guidelines have been developed to provide everyone involved in squash and racketball e.g. clubs, county organisations, coaches, referees, parents/carers, and players with the tools to ensure all participants are involved in best practice.
