Changing Rooms and Showering Facilities Policy

Adults must not change, or shower, at the same time using the same facility as children - if the same changing room is used then they must have different times.

If adults and children need to share a changing facility, they must do so at different times.

Mixed gender teams must have access to separate male and female changing rooms.

Due to the risks of inappropriate photography or filming, mobile phones must not be used in changing rooms.

If children are uncomfortable changing or showering at the club, no pressure should be placed on them to do so. Suggest instead that they may change and shower at home.

Team talks should take place outside on the outfield, however, in the event of bad weather or a first aid incident, two adults should be present in a changing room at these times.

No lone adult should be in the changing room with minors.
