This policy applies to adults and children sharing changing facilities.

The principles are as follows:

1. Adults must not change or shower at the same time using the same facility as children

2. Adults should try to change at separate times to children during matches i.e. when padding up

3. If Adults and children need to share a changing facility, the Club must have
consent from the Parents that their child(ren) can share a changing room with
Adults in the club

4. If children play for Adult Teams, they and their Parents must be informed of the Club’s policy on changing arrangements. This will be undertaken by the Team Captain. Such children are encouraged to arrive at matches ready changed (with the exception of external protective equipment)

5. Mixed gender teams must use separate male and female changing

6. Mobile phones must not be used in changing rooms

Please note that if children are uncomfortable changing or showering at the Club, no pressure will be placed on them to do so. Parents/ Carers are requested to encourage them to do this at home
