Equality Statement

What is Sports Equality? Sports Equality is about fairness in sport; equality of access; recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It involves changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to all members of society and ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to realise their talent and full potential.

With this in mind we are holding a female only sea kayaking event to try and encourage ladies into the male dominated paddlesport.

The committee will take, or support, positive action to eliminate individual discrimination:

  1. The committee respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport.
  2. The committee is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment and abuse.
  3. All participants have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behavior and promote equality of opportunity and the club’s management committee is responsible for implementing, maintaining and dealing with any breaches of this policy.
  4. The committee regards any incidence of discriminatory behaviour as serious misconduct and will deal with this according to British Canoeing policies/procedures.

Welfare Statement

Ladies Seas the Day is fully committed to safeguarding the well-being of its participants. All participants, coaches and leaders should show respect and understanding for the rights, safety and welfare of others, and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the sport.

We believe that taking part in paddlesport should be a positive and enjoyable part of people’s lives and to achieve this we have the following aims:

  1. Coaches and helpers should follow the British Canoeing Code of Ethics.
  2. All coaches, helpers and officials working with vulnerable adults should read and adhere to the British Canoeing ‘Child and Vulnerable Groups Protection Policy’. The management committee will follow the guidance of the policy in the event of any concerns or allegations.
  3. All participants, coaches and leaders are made aware of the events Code of Conduct and policies.
  4. The management committee will obtain written medical details of all participants which will be made known to coaches/leaders, where deemed appropriate and/or necessary.
  5. The event will identify a person whose role it is to deal with any issues concerning Safeguarding and Child Protection (Event Welfare Officer) and notify this person to all members. Anyone with concerns with respect to the welfare should contact that person. If that person is unavailable, they can contact the British Canoeing Safeguarding Officer.
