Herts Sports Partnership strives for all children and adults to feel safe, secure and happy whilst in their chosen sporting environment.
When you go to join a sports club, take part in taster or drop-in session each and every individual has the right to have fun and be safe. No one should spoil this for you.
However, if you ever feel that you are not having fun, you don't feel happy, or you do not feel safe, then you should look to speak to someone about it.
This could be your Clubs Welfare Officer, a school councillor, a nurse, or a person who you trust. These are all people who you could talk to, each person will listen, so do not feel like your voice will not be heard.
If you feel you are being bullied by your teammates, classmates or even your coach it is important to tell an individual who you trust. Your sports club or school should have their own anti-bullying policy which will explain their position on the no-tolerance of bullying in their club.
If you feel you don't have anyone to talk to please see our 'Important Contacts' tab.
