CP Compliancy Item 12

12.  Adequate Adult Supervision (one adult male and one adult female) during all children’s activities organised by the club, its coaches or officials, or by the club sub committees

Adequate Adult Supervision (one adult male and one adult female) during all children’s activities organised by the club, its coaches or officials, or by the club sub committees using the Adult to Child ratios as outlined in the Irish Sports Councils Code at:

http://www.irishsportscouncil.ie/Participation/Code_of_Ethics/Downloads/practice.pdf

The club, however, cannot accept responsibility for independent recreational play.  For example, two juniors arriving at the club on their own to play a game.  It is strongly recommended that if parents are encouraging their children to play independently of the clubs organised activities that one of the parents stays for the duration of the activity.
