This policy applies to parents, carers, coaches and other club officials.

  • If parents/carers are unable to make appropriate arrangements themselves the club must receive permission from the parents/carers to make arrangements to transport their child.
  • Parent/carers should inform the team manager or coach if no arrangements have been made.
  • It is not the responsibility of the coach or team manager to transport the children to and from the club.
