Social Networking and Communication
We strongly recommend that club coaches DO NOT participate in communication with children on social networking sites or by personal or frequent text messaging. Contact with players should always be via (or copied to) their parent or carer. All social network groups should be CLOSED and participation should be ADULTS ONLY or PLAYERS ONLY by invitation. Player groups should be administered by a DBS cleared adult/s who is made known to all parents of participating players. The administrator should only act in a monitoring capacity to ensure no inappropriate content or bullying and should not be participating in the conversations of the group.
