Carrickmines C<C has adopted and implemented the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport as set out by Tennis Ireland as an integral part of club policy on children and club membership. Upon joining the Club or renewal of annual membership, all members agree to abide by the Club’s Codes of Conduct.
The Club Children’s Officers are available should any member have any questions or require any assistance in relation to child protection in the club. The Club Children’s Officers for Carrickmines C<C are Ericka Kennedy and Kevin Keegan.
The club is not responsible for providing adult supervision for children except for formal coaching, matches and competitions. Carrickmines C<C does not accept responsibility for independent recreational play e.g. two juniors arriving at the club on their own to play a game or children being left unsupervised while their parents/guardians are playing tennis. It is strongly recommended that if children are playing in the club independently of the club’s organised activities, that a parent/guardian stays with them for the duration of the activity.
