Safeguarding and Protecting Children

Triathlon is fun, whether your at training or competing in an event! Sometimes the actions of others can make us feel upset or worried but this guide is here to help you understand what is happening and what you can do.  This guide has information on how to spot the signs if you are being bullied, who you can talk to and some general information about how to stay safe.

What to do if you are worried

All sport is brilliant, but sometimes it is spoilt by people who do or say things that hurt or frighten you. You may feel like you have no one to talk to; no one will listen or believe what you say. British Triathlon wants to stop this from happening and make sure you understand there is someone that is there to listen.

If someone is bullying or abusing you, it is important that you, make a note of who saw what happened and shout NO! to draw attention to any adults that are running the training and tell someone you know and trust. This can be scary but it's not your fault. It's better to make someone aware of what is happening so they can help to solve it. 

Who will listen to me?

You can speak to someone that you know and trust, this could be your Parents/Carers, your teacher, your Club Welfare Officer or your Coach, they will listen. If your are not comfortable speaking to someone you know and trust, you can talk to someone from Childline on 0800 11 11 or visit Childline's Website or you can contact the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000 or visit the NSPCC Website

If you feel like you are in immediate danger from an adult or another young person please contact the Police on 999
