Code of Ethics in Wexford


Please note the upcoming Code of Ethics and Best Practice in Sport & Child Protection in Sport in Wexford. A goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills. In order to achieve this, we encourage you to attend a Irish Sports Council certified Code of Ethics and Best Practice Awareness (Child Protection) workshops for leaders within sports clubs / organisations. This 4-hour ‘Child Welfare & Protection in Sport’ training course is for Children’s Officers and/or Designated Persons, Sports Leaders and other adults involved in the organisation of sport for young people. As well as undertaking child protection training, all governing bodies of sport and related organisations should adopt child protection policies and procedures as outlined in the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport.

The training will enable Children’s Officers/Sports Leaders to:

. Implement best practice in protecting the welfare of participants
. Create a child-centred environment within the sports club
. List categories of abuse and some indicators associated with abuse
. Make appropriate response to a disclosure
. Make a report to designated officer or appropriate Statutory Authorities
