To help ensure the safety of your children attending athletics, could we ask you to ensure that the children in your care are accompanied to the paddock gate by an adult and that they are signed in. Children should also be collected from the paddock gate. Please inform the children in your care that the only time they can leave the paddock during training is when they are accompanied by coaches. If they need to use the toilet during training, they must be escorted by their parent or alternatively by two adults.
