Wavepower 2016-19: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs


Wavepower 2016–19 is the latest Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Child Safeguarding Policies and Procedures publication which replaces all previous versions.


It has been produced to assist in safeguarding and protecting children in our sport and must be adopted by all ASA affiliated clubs and organisations.


Ensuring that children are safeguarded should be a key part of how our clubs and swim schools operate and helps to provide a safe, happy and fun environment in which children can learn to swim and develop their skills.


The responsibility to safeguard children does not belong to any one person, but instead belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering our sporting activities. Wavepower is intended for anyone involved in these activities and offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice.


This publication will be fully updated in 2020, but if any new guidance or policy changes are released prior to this, then pages will be updated or added to the Swim Englandf website


Please click on the link below and you will be directed to the Wavepowr page on the Swim England website where you are able to then download the full safeguarding document.





The Club's Welfare Officer is available to discuss any issues/concerns with regards to safeguarding and will deal with them under the guidance of Wavepower.


Our volunteer Welfare Officer is Donna who can be contacted on welfare@rydeswimmingclub.co.uk
