Safeguarding and Children's Safety

The ISA is committed to ensuring the well being and safety of anyone taking part in activities run by us or any of our affiliated organisations. We also recognise that we all hold a particular responsibility towards those children and vulnerable adults who choose to participate in our sports and activities.

As part of our commitment to ensuring that all of our water sports are accessible, fun and safe for children and vulnerable adults the ISA delivers a range of information and training programmes aimed at volunteers, staff, instructors, coaches, managers and administrators from ISA Clubs and Training Centres including the Irish Sport Council certified 3hr Safeguarding Courses including:

  • Safeguarding 1 - Basic Awareness Workshop in Child Welfare and Protection (3hrs)
  • Safeguarding 2 - Club Children's Officer Workshop (3hrs)
  • Safeguarding 3 - Designated Liaison Person Workshop (3hrs) 

By following the principles, policy and practical guidelines contained in the Code, Junior Organisers, Committee Members and Instructors can play their part in providing a safe and enjoyable environment in which children can learn and thrive.
