I am delighted to announce that Leeds Adel HC have been awarded the Clubs First accreditation by England Hockey. This means we have been recognised by our sport’s governing body as working towards providing a Safe, Effective and Child Friendly club environment.
Making sure we meet all the criteria to receive this award is a mammoth task and covers a vast and wide range of areas so it is a real team effort from a number of people on the coaching side and on the committee to be successful in our application.
However, special mentions must go to Greg who has battled away to make sure documentation is in place, Pam who has made sure our junior coaching side of things is ship-shape and Paul who has worked hard on the final few areas we needed ticking off.
Of course, this does not guarantee any success on the pitch but it does mean we have a strong and safe structure in place from which to work from and develop the club overall.
Thanks to everyone who has helped in whatever way you did.
