Welfare Officer: Rob Griffiths
Camford Sports have like all participating sports clubs a Welfare Officer.
All Team Leaders have and are in the process of receiving a CRB check via the FAW scheme and these are collated by Walter
Role:
There are many roles within the club that a Welfare officer may be asked to undertake.
They exist to protect the children from any form of abuse or injury. Abuse can come from many instances such as Manager’s, Coaches and more often from Parents. Those Parents who carry out such abuse will be asked to stop and ultimately leave the pitch-side. The Welfare Officer is also there to protect the Managers and Coaches should they have to attend to an injured child.
Should The Welfare Officer be approached they will report any form of complaint to the Committee and also may report instances to the West Wales FA and if they feel that it is serious then it may be referred onto the NSPCC.

CLUB GUIDELINES 2018/19

Camford Sports want your child to keep fit and have fun through playing football. To help us achieve this we have established these guidelines for coaches, volunteers, parents and players. All of our guidelines are based upon those that have been agreed by the Football Association of Wales. If these simple guidelines are followed then all of our young players can enjoy their time and develop new football skills and new friends!

All of our coaches have achieved the FOOTBALL LEADERS AWARD from the FAW Trust and we will endeavour to provide as many coaches as possible for sessions. Please read the following information with regards to training and matches.

If you are interested in coaching or volunteering in other ways then please do not hesitate to contact the Team Leaders.

  • In order to allow our coaches to maximise the players potential please try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the match day kick off.
  • The annual subscription is £70 per player (additional £35 for brothers/sisters). This subscription covers training, insurance and pitch hire and should be paid within the first week of the new season. An incremental payment plan is available if required.
  • At least one parent or designated guardian must be present at matches and training sessions. Transport, behaviour, toilet use and punctuality are the responsibility of the parent or guardian not Camford Sports. Please inform a team leader if the parent of another child is taking responsibility for your child.
  • The club will wherever possible provide shirts, shorts and socks for matches. All club kit must be returned to the club if players leave or a new kit is issued. All other kit must be provided by the player i.e. suitable clothing, footwear, shin pads and gloves for a goalkeeper. All players must wear shin pads during matches and training sessions, they will not be allowed to participate without them.
  • The club will provide a person who has attended a First Aid for Football awareness course and a First Aid Kit at every match and training session.
  • Players must bring their own drinks for training sessions and matches
  • Please respect our opponents! It is the responsibility of coaches and parents to set a good example to the players e.g. applaud good play by both teams, refrain from using foul and offensive language and encourage players regardless of ability, this can only teach our players sportsmanship and fairplay.
  • Photographs should only be placed on the Facebook Group page and only if all parents agree *see consent form
  • During matches please let the coach run the team. All aspects of the game will be decided by the coach i.e. tactics, starting line-ups and substitutions. If you need to raise an issue with the coach please feel free to bring it up AFTER the game!

Please remember all our club representatives are unpaid volunteers, if you feel you could help out in any capacity let us know
