HEALTH AND SAFETY
Before each session, please ensure your child is in good health and physically able to participate. Follow the advice of your doctor regarding any infectious illnesses (e.g. chicken pox).
Notify your child's session coach of any health issues, special situations, or any other issues that may currently be upsetting or affecting your child (e.g. bullying at school, illness of a relative).
Please ensure we are kept informed of any medical conditions that may affect their participation.
If your child has any chronic or ongoing medical conditions, you should make us aware of these when your child first joins the club and subsequently as issues arise.
PLASTERS - Covering cuts is importantas it reduces the risk of infection, promotes healing and also prevents blood coming into contact with other children. it is our policy to apply adhesive dressings to any minor abraisions, which will allow your child to continue with their class. Please inform us if you are unhappy for this to be done.
VERUCAS, etc. - Minor foot infections can be spread during any activity where participants have bare feet, but are typically most commonly spread via wet surfaces (i.e., swimming pool changing areas) and less so via the floor surfaces found in the gym. if your child has a verruca, please cover it; we are happy for them to wear socks if they will feel more comfortable.
Long hair must be tied back neatly, using a plain elastic hair band, (NOT hair accessories, flowers, butterflies, etc).
A leotard, or shorts and tshirt, must be worn.
CONTACT DETAILS - For the safety and welfare of your child - ABSOLUTLY MAKE SURE we have your up to date contact details. ESPECIALLY mobile phone and email address
