Team captains will undergo Criminal Record Bureau
(CRB) checks following their appointment.
The club will provide appropriate protective
equipment for all players involved in cricket practices and matches. Players
aged 18 and above, may make their own decision as to whether or not they make
use of the provided equipment. Young players, under the age of 18, must use
appropriate protective equipment, either provided by the Club or by themselves.
The ECB Fast Bowling Match Directive and safety
guidance on the wearing of helmets by young players will be followed at all
times by the Club. These apply to all players under the age of 18 years.
The Club requires that all young cricketers, under
the age of 18, provide medical and emergency contact details. The Player
Profile and Consent forms will be used for this purpose. Completed forms will
be held by the Junior Club and information about relevant players will be
passed to coaches, managers and senior team captains.
When young players practice at the same time as
adult members, there will always be at least two adults present at all times,
unless a young player's parent/carer is present.
Protective clothing and equipment will be provided
for groundsmen when any hazardous work is undertaken.
The club will encourage members to become qualified
first-aiders. However, it is not Club policy to ensure one is present at every
practice or match.
An accident book will be kept in the pavilion with
the first aid kit.
