When joining a club or taking part in sport, you have the right to have fun and stay safe. No one should ever spoil it - this for you!
Bullying can mean lots of things like exclusion, name calling, hitting, shoving, stealing, spreading rumours,
making threats, sending nasty phone texts, pictures or emails. It can be online and offline.
Remember, if you are not comfortable with any physical contact, you have the right to say no, speak out and talk to someone you trust.
If you're worried and need to talk, contact Childline on 0800 1111 (24hr) or you can turn to a parent, club welfare officer, school counsellor or nurse.
Just like coaches have a responsibility to make your activity fun and safe, so do you. This means respecting the coaches who are there to help you and other young people by:
-sticking to the rules
-being prepared and on time for the activity
-Not making insulting comments or swearing at the coach, other helpers or members of the club
-Doing your best at all times
-Thinking about what you do/say on the Internet
-Being a supportive and enthusiastic team player
If you have any questions and concerns, you can contact the Child Protection in Sport Unit on 0116 234 7278, the NSPCC Child Protection helpline on 0808 800 5000, Chidline on 0800 1111 and Bullying Online at firstname.lastname@example.org
