Rosario adheres to all required policies and regulations.
Child Protection Policy:
Rosario is fully committed to ensure the care, welfare and safety of the young people who come to our centre. We will seek to carry out this responsibility in a caring, supportive and safe environment. We will value young people as individuals, with unique gifts and talents, and we aim to “foster the personal, social and spiritual development of each young person” in our care. We therefore dedicate ourselves to take all necessary and reasonable measures to protect the young people in our care from the risk of physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
We will endeavour to safeguard the young people in our care by:
- Adopting child protection guidelines through a code of behaviour for staff and volunteers;
- Sharing information about child protection and good practice with children, parents, staff and volunteers;
- Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know, and involving parents and children appropriately;
- Following carefully the procedures for recruitment of staff and volunteers; and
- Providing effective management for staff and volunteers through supervision, support and training
Our policy and practice is reviewed at regular intervals.
Code of Conduct for parents & guardians
- Children & young people should be encouraged to
- Do their best, put in their best effort
- Improve and develop their skills
- Make friends
- Play by the rules
- Appreciate/accept everyone in the group, regardless of ability, race, religion, gender, etc
Parents/guardians play an important role in promoting children’s happiness and success in football. Parental expectations and behaviour have a significant bearing children’s attitude and behaviour while participating in football.
Parents/guardians need to be aware of why children want to play football. Children want to learn new skills, make new friends, be part of a group, to win and be successful, experience challenges and excitement.
Whilst winning is important, it must be remembered that winning at all costs does not meet the needs of players. Results are not necessarily a good indicator of coaching effectiveness or ability. The improvement of players and their level of enjoyment is.
