Changing Rooms and Showering Policy

Statement of Intent

The aim of this policy is to provide procedures and practical guidance for all Nacton Cricket Club employees, agents, volunteers, and other professionals and or partners working alongside Nacton CC to safeguard children (*)
(*The word “children” should be taken to mean all persons under the age of 18yrs)

Best Practice Procedures

Nacton CC has adopted the following ECB Best Practice principles on Changing and Showering Facilities for Children in order to ensure the safety and welfare of children;

  • Adults must not change, or shower, at the same time using the same facility as children - if the same changing room is used then they must have different times;
  • If adults and children need to share a changing facility, they must do so at different times;
  • Mixed gender teams must have access to separate male and female changing rooms ;
  • Due to the risks of inappropriate photography or filming, mobile phones must not be used in changing rooms.

If children are uncomfortable changing or showering at the club, no pressure should be placed on them to do so. Suggest instead that they may change and shower at home.
