The majority of managers at our club have attended basic first aid courses to treat most football related injuries. All of our level 1 coaches have basic first aid, we have also appointed first aiders at Front Lawn (see below).
The well-being and care of all our players is of a paramount importance. All our managers and their assistants know their responsibilities as far our players safety is concerned. All teams carry a full first aid kit appropriate to football related injuries.
It is important to know that legislation prohibits club officials from dispensing tablets.
All our managers are CRC checked as per FA guidelines.
Havant & Waterlooville Youth FC are particularly aware of the role we perform in the local community.
Our responsibility is not just to provide the opportunity to play football, but to do so in a safe environment.
All club managers have undergone instruction on Child Protection. This instruction was given by the Chief Child Protection Officer for Portsmouth City Council and Hampshire FA child welfare department.
Appointed First Aid at Front Lawn:
