Policies & Procedures

Swim England Data Protection and Privacy Policy:

Trafford Metropolitan Borough Swimming Club - hereafter TMBSC, adheres to the Swim England policy for data protection. The laws governing data protection changed in May 2018. The document linked at the bottom of this page outlines the policy that TMBSC follows and is an important element of our Swim Mark accreditation. 

Disability Policy:

TMBSC is committed to providing opportunities for all swimmers, including those in the Swim Link Scheme and will endeavour to give everyone the opportunity to be active members whether or not they have a disability.

TMBSC has a policy, where possible, of integrating swimmers with disabilities into the existing training programme. If this is not possible we can direct swimmers to other Clubs who operate or run separate sessions for swimmers with disabilities.

The Club also organises courses for coaches which includes training on coaching or working with disabled swimmers for them to appreciate the special needs of disabled people who wish to become members of the Club.

Any member, with a disability, is asked to notify the Club accordingly in order that their needs may be addressed and this policy fully deployed.

Safeguarding

TMBSC takes its safeguarding responsibilities seriously.

We want our athletes to thrive in a competitive, supportive and friendly environment.  All coaches and volunteers are DBS checked. We adhere to Swim England's safeguarding policy called Wavepower. A copy of Wavepower can be accessed using the link below.


Photography and filming guidance, particularly relevant in our regular galas, is provided in Wavepower. Further guidance is provided by the NSPCC through their CPSU team, a copy of which is available here:

Please direct any questions to the Club's secretary, Mark Leach on markleach1965@gmail.com or to the Club's Welfare Officer, Helen Sadler on helensemail@btinernet.com

Club Equity:

TMBSC and the ASA have a responsibility to protect all children and young people irrespective of their age, gender, race, religion, sexual identity or disability. All ASA clubs are required to take measures to ensure the needs of children and young people are protected from any form of abuse.

The Club will ensure that equity is incorporated in all aspects of its activities. Sports Equity is about fairness in sport, equality of access, and recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them.

The Club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport free from threat, discrimination, intimidation, harassment or abuse.
TMBSC has addressed the above in line with ASA recommendations as follows:
1. The club policy makes it clear that all children and young people have equal rights to protection.
2. The club gives guidance on child protection through policy and procedure.
3. The club has a code of conduct that expects all members and adults concerned with the club to treat children with dignity, fairness, and respect.
4. The club has a code of conduct that makes it clear that discrimination, offensive or violent behaviour is not acceptable, and complaints will be acted upon.
5. The club has a complaints procedure that is open, available in writing, and observes the following: all parties are fairly treated; the complainant has the opportunity to present their case; and the accused has the opportunity to respond.

 

Fundraising:

As a club we are always looking at ways to raise funds so as to keep increases to membership and training fees to an absolute minimum.

We have been made aware of the Easyfundraising Scheme by a parent of one of our younger swimmers and have set up a Trafford Metro Swimming Club Account.

Whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – through the Easyfundraising Scheme you collect free donations for Trafford Metro Swimming Club.

There are over 3,000 shops and sites linked to the Easyfundraising Scheme who will make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, Aviva, thetrainline, Expedia,Vodafone,Tesco, Sainsbury's and gocompare.com and it doesn't cost you a penny extra!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Head to https://new.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/tmbsc/ and join for free.

2. Every time you shop online, go to Easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.

3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause – Trafford Metro Swimming Club - for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and Trafford Metro Swimming Club will be really grateful for your donations, which will be used to directly benefit YOU.

Please support our club through this scheme when you shop online!

Punctuality:

Swimmer Punctuality at Training Sessions.
Coaches prepare sessions based on the full time available and it is important that swimmers take maximum advantage and complete all parts of the session. Most sessions will involve a poolside warm up that is an important element in preparing to swim so all swimmers should aim to be on the poolside at least 10 minutes before the actual session start time

The pool warm-up is just as important as it prepares the body for the intensive session workouts and must be completed correctly to minimise the possibility of injury. A swimmer who is late causes the coach to adapt the warm-up for them, not easy within the time available and not fair to other swimmers.

If swimmers feel they have a valid reason for being late, the parent/guardian must accompany them onto poolside and inform the coach. The coach will make the decision whether the swimmer is allowed to train based on time lost and previous punctuality.

If your swimmer is late and is excluded from a session, please speak to the coach if you feel they have been unfairly treated. No leeway will be given on this matter.

Finally, please note that most swimmers are punctual and expect to have full and uninterrupted sessions to maximise the opportunities being offered to them. Swimming training is difficult and everyone must be aware of their responsibility to coaches, other swimmers and particularly to themselves.

We want all swimmers to accept the opportunity to be the best they can be.

Be early with all equipment, goggles, caps etc. in place ready to train, every session. Avoid drinking sweet sugary drinks immediately prior to swimming - these encourage the desire for toilet breaks that should not be necessary and will not normally be allowed.
