Safe Sports Events Management Tool

All children and young people have the right to enjoy their sport safely. This applies whether playing in a local park, with a local club or representing their school, county, region or country.

This online tool will help you to ensure that you meet the safeguarding responsibilities for your event. You do not necessarily need to work through each section of the tool – you can just identify which parts are relevant to you and work through these at the appropriate level.

The content is taken from the Child Protection in Sport Unit's guidance, Safe sport events, activities and competitions.

We have also recorded a safeguarding at sports events podcast in which we discuss the safeguarding needs of different sized events. We talk about what needs to be look at pre, during and post event to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
