SafeKids Policy

 

SafeKids Program for Goalquest

The following constitute the policies of Goalquest with regard to awareness and prevention of abuse within our organization.

Goalquest is committed to provide a safe environment and to prevent child abuse and sexual misconduct.

Goalquest will make every reasonable effort to ensure that every person involved in coaching/training a sport activity in our organization will abide by the SafeKids guidelines.

Goalquest will make every reasonable effort to exclude any adult with a legally documented history of child abuse/molestation or any other conviction or record that would bring unnecessary risk to the health and safety of the participants of this organization.

Goalquest will perform a criminal background check on every person applying for a position at our organization.

Goalquest will take appropriate action on all allegations of child abuse and/or sexual misconduct. All allegations will be reported immediately to the authorities for investigation and will cooperate fully with any such investigation.

The following represent the preventive measures of our organization with regard to abuse:
  •   Physical, mental, and verbal abuse of any of the participants, coaches, managers, employees, volunteers involved in our sponsored activities is not permitted.

  •  Inappropriate touching of any kind is forbidden.

  •  We agree to provide more than one adult working at or overseeing every activity. If a child needs

    special attention (one -on-one training or an individual meeting), it will be handled with the

    assistance or presence of another adult.

  •  Coaches/trainers should not socialize with the participants outside of the sponsored activities of the

    organization.

  •  Coaches/trainers should never ride alone with a child or participant in the car. Procedures will be

    established for coaches to follow in the event a participant is stranded at an activity.

  •  Parents are encouraged to attend sponsored activities
