The Banister Athletics Club

The Banister athletics club has just requested for me to help them

draw up a suitable code of practice and would like it to promote its

use with players, coaches and spectators.


In athletics there is a responsibility for attentiveness for the

necessity of safety precautions and the observance at all times by

spectators and participants alike.

The people who are in charge should make sure that all members are

completely aware of the potential hazards involved and observe the

rules that must be followed.

Equal opportunity policy

This club aims to provide an environment where all members, coaches

and spectators can feel welcome and participants in particular to have

the opportunity to achieve their full potential with a feeling of

esteem. No-one should be harassed or discriminated against because of

their age, disability, colour, race ethnic origin, nationality,

gender, religion or sexual orientation. The club encourages anyone

with a disability to inform staff. This enables the staff to help

where needed. Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated on

these premises. Any one found in breech of this rule will no longer

be welcome to join our club.

My second session was coaching 15 – 16 year olds for a netball

tournament. The feedback was excellent. They commented that all my

equipment was checked for any damage before use and checked that it

was available. Overall the conveyance of the session went smoothly.

The participants were given clear instructions of what was expected of

them. The code of conduct was not made very clear at the beginning of

the session. The comments given about my performance as a coach were

above average.

The evaluation given was good. It was said that the session went

well, both coach and participants were happy. I was told that my

session started off a bit slow, but picked up the pace in the end.

However it was that the activity was carried out enthusiastically.
