Gloucestershire Archery Society was formed to support all archery clubs in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and Bristol.

Safeguarding Courses

Do you work or volunteer in sport and want to better understand your role and responsibilities in protecting the children and young people you come into contact with?

Keeping people safe is important. All organisations need to do safeguarding well. Everyone needs to be involved. These resources will help you make plans and carry them out.

Coach safeguarding training

It’s mandatory for Archery GB licensed coaches to complete tutor-led interactive safeguarding training, which can be done either face-to-face or online, as part of their licence. This must be renewed every 3 years to ensure safeguarding skills and knowledge are up to date.

This gives confidence to children, young people, adults at risk, and parents and carers that their coaches can deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively.

The recommended course is provided either online or in person by UK Coaching.
