Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Training

Tipperary Sports Partnership is facilitating a Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Basic Awareness training.

The course is aimed at sports leaders, children’s officers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport. A central goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills.

Promoting a child-centred environment should go hand in hand with identifying and eliminating practices that impact negatively on safe and enjoyable participation in sport for young people.

- February 1st from 6.00pm-9.00pm

- February 8th from 6.00pm-9.00pm
