There are some critical updates on change of requirements and how we are making the game better and safer for 2019/20 that all members need to be aware of.
Firstly, we would like to inform members about some improvements we are making to the sport’s safeguarding practice and news of the standards within the game.
We are also seeking to support our members more with a wider range of options to access affordable safeguarding training.
Some of these adjustments will require your club to do a few things differently and it’s part of the necessary evolution of the practice we all need to adopt in the sport to keep up with changes in society, the law and the need for Basketball England to support and protect its members – whether its young people/vulnerable adults or volunteer and paid practitioners.
Some changes need to be made immediately for this year. Others we will be looking to phase-in going forward, but we will offer more support along the way for all members and clubs throughout this process.
Below we have a button that will take you to our dedicated page for safeguarding and welfare information you need to be aware of.
We hope the page helps you prepare for a safe, enjoyable and successful season.
