Clothing
We do not require the kids to wear specific club kit while training. Children should  wear gum shields and shin guards at all times and if they are playing competitive games representing the club game this is mandatory. Training tops in Navy or Orange will be available to purchase. We would prefer the members not to ware school kit if they can avoid it.

Communications
From time to time the Club will post information on Twitter, Facebook or the Club website to help communication. The twitter names to follow are: @dale_western and @ClydesdaleHC. Please note that due to inclement weather we may have to cancel sessions at short notice and we do ask for your understanding if this situation occurs. Notice of cancellations and other events added to the programme will be posted on Twitter so please follow.

Code of Conduct
It is vital for everyone’s enjoyment and safety that the children behave whilst on the pitch. This includes doing what they are told when asked and paying attention to what is going on. We will not tolerate instances of bullying, verbal abuse, bad language and general disobedience. If a child has to be spoken to on more than two occasions, he/she may be asked to leave. We ask for your support in ensuring that all the children and those who give their time to coach them enjoy their sessions at the Club.

Please be aware that it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure the safe collection of their children from the premises at the end of the sessions.

Child Protection
The club has a child protection policy . A copy of the policy can be accessed on this link
