Code of Conduct for Children

The British Tenpin Bowling Association is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all its members. The club believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others. Therefore, members are encouraged to be open at all times and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of their club with Lee Hart and Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer.

Sports clubs should offer a positive experience for children and young people and where they can learn new things in a safe and positive environment.
