All hockey clubs in England who have young people playing in their teams should be aiming to implement the best practices possible. This, in conjunction with DBS checks and safeguarding training, is done with the intention of keeping all young people in hockey safe. Good practice is not just for training and matches, but for anything a club does that involves young people.
England Hockey have produced a good practice guidance document, which can be found on the right of this page. The guidance covers working with young people, positions of trust, supervision ratios, communication and changing rooms. As well as general do’s and don’ts, the guidance also contains targeted guidance for certain scenarios and links to other useful organisations.

Guidance documents and templates which clubs and associations can use have also been produced on several specific topics, all of which can be found below.
