Sharks Ski Club is a friendly Club! We are not just developing skiing skills; we are about teaching all our members to support and respect friends and the adults in the Club; but most of all our ethos is for our members to accept the challenge of skiing, like any sporting activity that challenges, giving encouragement to each other.

We create lessons for children to learn in an environment and manner that suits them and provide separate adult lessons that are geared to developing their skiing ability.

Our instructors, coaches and other volunteers dedicate their skills, experience, and time to encourage and develop all our skiers.

Sharks Ski Club accepts that all children, young people and adults have the following basic rights:

  • to be valued as a person.

Sharks Ski Club will provide training in which all members feels safe and cared for, valued, and treated with dignity and respect.

Sharks Ski Club will provide a duty of care to protect each young person from abuse.

What Club Welfare Officers Do

Sharks Ski Club is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk who ski with the club.

The Club Welfare Officer role is to oversee the Safeguarding and welfare of all our members, and to be a point of contact to discuss any concerns.  You will see Lindsay and I most Saturday's on the slope and we are always available to discuss any concerns that you have.

With a long standing background in Safeguarding, I have worked at national and local level in Adults and Children's Social Care and the NHS for over 25 years.

Anyone who wishes to raise a matter of concern may do so knowing that we shall deal with it sensitively, confidentially, discreetly and with honesty of purpose.
