Policies and Procedures


In January 2018, we were the first club in the county to achieve the new England Hockey Clubmark accreditation. Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. Being Clubmark accredited means we are recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as helping parents and carers know that they're choosing the right club for their young people. It shows that as a club we have higher standards of welfare, equity, coaching and management.

England Hockey's Safeguarding Young People Policy and Guidelines

England Hockey has a Code of Ethics & Behaviour which covers all people involved in hockey in this country. Everyone involved in the sport should promote equality of access and opportunity, fairness and respect. All those involved within hockey have a responsibility to act according to the highest standards of integrity and to ensure that the reputation of the sport remains high. This Code encapsulates all of the sporting, moral and ethical principles that hockey represents and is intended for all participants and disciplines within the sport however they choose to participate - as a player, umpire, coach, official, volunteer or a parent supporting on the sidelines.

Safeguarding Procedures

The England Hockey Online Safeguarding Course has been created with the purpose of protecting and providing a safe and enjoyable environment for young people within hockey, something which is very important to us at Chertsey Thames Valley. The course provides a basic level of safeguarding training to anyone working with young people. This is specifically aimed at coaches, umpires, team captains and volunteers who work with young people on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
