We consider the welfare of each and every child on our camps as vitally important and we need your assistance to ensure the safety and security of your child throughout their time with us. Please ensure you provide us with all the relevant medical, emergency contact and travel information for your child at least 1 month prior to arrival. We will have a dedicated Child Welfare team on site all day to cater for the needs of all children.
All staff on our camps are dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of every child. The following highlights some key information on the physical aspects of the camp.
Q. What will happen if my child gets injured during the course?
A. Injuries are unfortunately part of contact and collision sports such as soccer. A fully qualified professional, will be pitch side at all sessions to assess injuries and treat them accordingly. Anything urgent and the child is taken to hospital immediately. Physios and a nurse are on site at all times during the day.
Q. What if my child has an existing injury/weakness when they start the course?
A. If your child has sustained an injury prior to the course, please inform a member of staff as soon as possible. The physio will assess the injury on arrival and offer advice. All staff will be notified of the injury so they can monitor any changes. We take great care when dealing with minor injuries, treating them thoroughly and effectively in order to reduce the chance of long term problems.
Q. If my child is sick or unwell on the course what happens?
A. Minor problems are treated by a designated member of the team. If a child is unwell, he or she will be taken to a doctor or to the hospital, accompanied by one of our members of staff.
Q. Is there anything in particular my child needs to bring for the training sessions?
A. Shin guards are an essential piece of equipment to remember. We do not let children participate without them. We also recommend bringing boots with both short and long studs, so they are prepared for playing on all surfaces.
Q. How do you avoiding blisters?
A. New boots, particularly in the summer when the ground is hard, can cause blisters. If your child has new boots we advise to ‘wear them in’ before the course starts to avoid the risk of blisters. We can treat blisters, along with any other minor injuries – abrasions, strains and bruising.
Q. How do you monitor diet, nutrition and hydration.
A. We monitor each child to ensure he/she is eating / drinking enough during the camp. We also talk to the children about key food groups and the importance of a healthy diet.
