Work in progress
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:
- The committee respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport.
- 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.
- 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.
- The committee regards any incidence of discriminatory behaviour as serious misconduct and will deal with this according to British Canoeing policies/procedures.
