within the sports club.
We are keen to promote positive images of Rugby and do not therefore prohibit photography by parents and guardians. However, there is evidence that some people have used sporting events as an opportunity to take inappropriate images of young people so we have introduced the following guidelines and requested consent on the registration form:
- Ask the Head Coach for permission to take photographs to ensure other parents are happy with their childs’ image being used;
- Only use images of young players in appropriate dress;
- Encourage the reporting of inappropriate use of images of young people to the Welfare Officer or Head Coach;
- The Club is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for young people. Implicit in this is the commitment to ensure that all publications, resources and media represent participants appropriately and with due respect.
