MANAGING THE ULTIMATE RISK Policy
Do’s and Dont’s
There are many steps you can do every practice or gameday to protect yourself and our kids.
Do not be alone with a child without another parent available. Especially with the time change and the daylight hours earlier and earlier, dont be left alone with a child. If only one child is left, ask another parent to wait with you.
Avoid engaging in any conduct that could be deemed inappropriate when dealing with your players. Suggestive comments, telling dirty jokes, rough housing, or overly aggressive horseplay should be considered unsafe.
Avoid any touching that could be considered inappropriate.
Educate yourself about the subject of false allegations of child abuse.
Don’t put yourself in any unnecessary situation that could give rise to suspicion. Such as accompanying a player to the bathroom, helping them change clothes, etc. If it is necessary, always ensure another parent is present.
If you suspect a child is being abused by a parent or another coach, do not hesitate, contact Salina Contreras-Arciniaga, Risk Manager or Alex Valle, League President. Or contact the police.
Thank you all for your attention to this serious matter. Let me know if you have any questions
