Keeping Safe in Sport: Safeguarding for Young Volunteers (13+)

The age-appropriate safeguarding workshop designed for young coaches, officials, volunteers and sports leaders.

This workshop is particularly suited to sports where young people, between the ages of 13 and 17, are involved in coaching and volunteering activities from a young age, while still too young to take, and be certified for, the adult version of the ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children’ workshop.

What Coaches Will Learn:

  • To identify and recognise good volunteering practice for keeping children safe.
  • What to do if they have concerns about a child.
  • To support safe sports sessions for children.

When it comes to keeping children safe in sport, ensure your young coaches are prepared.

‘The young people went away from the workshop with a clear understanding of what they should do if a situation arose, which helped their overall confidence.’

Suzanne Gough, Head of Coaching and Volunteering,
Youth Sport Trust
