This form should be used by a person of authority (for example Event Manager, Basketball England representative, Event Welfare Officer, Therapist, S&C coach) working at Basketball England run events.
The information submitted will be reviewed during the next working day by the Safeguarding and Integrity Team at Basketball England (BE) and if necessary immediate follow up action taken.
Data will be considered once a month as part of Clinical Governance meetings held by BE. Any significant events will be discussed, analysed and any improvements or lessons learned will be actioned. Relevant feedback will then be provided to appropriate staff members.
All relevant sections of the form must be completed. The form is split into the following sections.
Sections 1 and 5 must be completed for all reports.
Please remember you also have a duty to report all Serious Incidents (such as discrimination online or offline, abuse against match officials and other integrity related matters) to [email protected].
Please click on the relevant sections below for further information that may be of use.
This section should be used for recording accidents, near-misses and sporting injuries (where treated by BE appointed staff) on or off the court. All of these will be referred to as accidents in this section of the form.
It is acknowledged that medical staff (i.e. Doctors / Physiotherapists) may have their own systems for recording injuries. However medical staff must still complete this form, and update Medinotes (if they have access) within 24 hours of treating a person.
It is also acknowledged that teams may have their own therapists and methods for recording and reporting sporting injuries. Teams should be reminded of their responsibility to record and report incidents to the insurers.
A near miss is an unexpected event that could have caused harm but didn’t. It is important to report these issues so that we can act to prevent an accident potentially happening in the future. Please also send photos of the area in which the incident occurred in so that we may consider whether it occurred as a result of a defect or fault in either equipment of surroundings.

Basketball England's Concussion Policy, which is mentioned in the form below, can be viewed here.
Liability should be not accepted/discussed and no offers of settlement be made without Insurers advice.
Remember - Have you?
A significant event is something out of the ordinary which has happened such as a change of venue, cancellation of games, change in travel/accommodation or something more serious.
You should also use this space to complete ‘Neutral Reporting’. A neutral event is an occurrence that would constitute a breach of policy but where an individual wants to self-report in order to make Basketball England aware that a breach has occurred. An example of this might be where a member of staff enters a player’s bedroom to attend to an emergency without an accompanying adult.
