Safety Policy -
In lieu of police checks, NCBC has a mandatory 2 adult policy at all times
with athletes. This 2 adult policy (Rule of Two
) is in place to protect athletes, coaches and volunteers. Of these 2 adults one must be of the same gender of the athletes
, (ie. u13 boys team being coached by a female must have a male parent or assistant coach in the gym, bench, etc as the second adult). This includes all games, practices, team meetings and any team related activities. As members it is your responsibility that you volunteer where required to meet this requirement. This is a mandatory policy, we need members to ensure the adults in the gym when dropping off your child, this means you need to walk into the gym to ensure there are 2 adults in the gym or the team is not allowed to practice, or play, etc. With that we insist that you pick up your athlete on time from practices, and games.
