Safeguarding and Protection

December 13th, 2017

I am writing to let you know of some changes to the Child Protection Role within the club.  This role will now be known as the Safeguarding and Protection Role.  As the name suggests, the role is to help and enable every member of Balfron Barracudas to feel safe, valued and part of a positive swimming club.

If anyone has any concerns regarding the wellbeing of any of the clubs members, please do not hesitate to contact myself – Nicki Corrigan – via the separate Safeguarding and Protection E mail on the Balfron Barracudas website.

Many thanks,

Congratulations to all of the kids for putting such a great effort into the timing night, with improvement across the board, and some great times to build upon for our newer swimmers.  Thanks also to all of the helpers who offered their assistance on the night and to Sheila and all of the other coaches whose hard work and dedication to our children’s development was on show for all to see.
