The health, safety and well-being of every swimmer is our main concern; our aim is that swimmers will enjoy their time with us. Safeguarding our swimmers is everybody’s responsibility and we want to work in partnership with you to help all swimmers to achieve their full potential.

You Tube Video "My Magic Sports Kit - NSPCC" -

This video shows several children involved in different sports describing how the behaviour of parents/spectators deteriorates when they wear their 'magic sports kit' -- i.e. when they compete. They talk about a range of bad adult behaviours and how these negatively impact on them. They then describe and promote positive behaviour.
