Parents' code of conduct

As a parent/carer of a member of the club, you are expected to abide by the
following code by:
• Informing the coach of any specific health requirements or medical conditions of
your child in advance of the coaching session by completion of a Club Membership
form or a Parental Consent form
• Advising the coach if your child has to leave early or is being collected by someone other than a parent/carer, giving details of the arrangement including
who will be collecting your child, when and at what time
• Encouraging your child to learn the rules and play within them
• Discouraging unfair play and arguing with officials
• Helping your child to recognise good performance, not just results
• Setting a good example by recognising fair play and applauding the good performances of all
• Never punishing or abusing a child for losing or making mistakes
• Publicly accepting officials’ judgments and teaching children to do likewise
• Supporting your child’s involvement and help them to enjoy their sport
• Using correct and proper language at all times
• Remembering that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours
• Supporting all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities
• Respecting the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their
gender, ability, disability, cultural background or religion
• Showing appreciation and respect for coaches, officials and administrators. Remember, without them, your child could not participate


Welfare Officers


We have two Club Welfare Officers whose mandate is to maintain British Cycling's high standards in relation to children participating in cycling; allowing peace of mind for participants, their families and cycling clubs by ensuring those working with young people are suitable to do so.   

If you have any concern at all about any aspect of any activity or individual at the club, please email
