Staying Safe in the digital world
We all benefit from the digital world, when used appropriately. We create our own digital footprint every time we post comments, photos and videos – so be sure before you post.
If you wouldn’t say or do something face-to-face, then don’t do it online.
WE WANT YOU TO BE SAFE
If at any time you feel the way you are being treated at your club isn’t ‘right’, there are various ways you can report this. Such treatment could be by an adult – e.g. a coach, referee or someone else – or another child or young person.
We know that not being picked for a team can be tough. So can being played in a position you don’t like. But we don’t mean this. By ‘right’, we mean someone behaving towards you in a physical or verbal way you find threatening or makes you feel scared or bad.
