Safe Guarding

Safeguarding is a critical aspect of East London Hockey Club's commitment to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all members, particularly for our youth section. Here's an overview of our safeguarding measures:

Child Protection: We have strict policies in place to protect children and young people involved in our club. This includes measures to prevent abuse, bullying, and discrimination, as well as guidelines for appropriate behavior and interaction between adults and children.

DBS Checks: All individuals working closely with children undergo Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. These checks help ensure that individuals with a history of inappropriate behavior are not involved in our youth programs.

Training: Our coaches, leaders, and volunteers receive regular training on safeguarding, enabling them to recognize and respond to any issues concerning the welfare of young members.

Reporting Mechanisms: We have clear reporting mechanisms in place for anyone who has concerns about the well-being of a child or young person within our club. These concerns are taken seriously and addressed promptly.

Safe Environments: We maintain safe and appropriate facilities and playing areas for all members, with a particular focus on ensuring youth players have secure and supervised spaces.

Designated Safeguarding Officer: Our club has a designated Safeguarding Officer responsible for overseeing safeguarding policies and procedures. This individual acts as the point of contact for any safeguarding concerns.

Open Communication: We encourage open communication between members, parents, and guardians to ensure everyone is aware of our safeguarding procedures and knows how to report any concerns.

Our commitment to safeguarding is unwavering, and we strive to create a club environment where everyone feels secure, protected, and able to enjoy the sport without worry. We believe that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility, and together, we work to keep our club a safe and inclusive place for all.


At East London Hockey Club (ELHC), our foundation lies in dedicated volunteers who invest their time, passion, and energy to drive the club's operations. Aligned with our constitutional objectives, we are committed to:

  • Organising, promoting, and nurturing hockey's growth and development at all levels. This includes coaching within the club and local schools, participating in leagues, tournaments, and friendly matches.
  • Seeking member support, financial resources, and sponsorship opportunities to advance our club's objectives. We are committed to ensuring equal sporting opportunities for all.
  • Providing a secure, effective, and child-friendly environment where individuals can learn and enjoy the sport of hockey.

Our committed volunteers serve on various committees, including:

  • Executive Committee
  • Playing Committee
  • Operations Committee
  • Youth Committee

Every year, as the season draws to a close, ELHC hosts its Annual General Meeting (AGM). During the AGM, we reflect on the past season, elect new officers for the upcoming season, and collaboratively chart a course for an even more successful future. It's a testament to our collective commitment to continually improve and provide the best hockey experience for our members.
