At Scottish Hockey we want children and young people to stay safe and have fun while taking part in hockey. Everyone involved in hockey has a duty to safeguard the welfare of all children in their care.
Scottish Hockey has made a commitment to promote safe practice and to protect children from harm, abuse and exploitation. This duty extends to the prevention of physical, sexual or emotional abuse of any child and shall be applied regardless of the child's gender, race, religion, sexuality or disability.
