lots of clubs now dont have a junior section [ours included] because of the legal minefield involved.
child protection is there for the protection of the children involved and the adults looking after them and is now law.
anyone running a junior section without all the correct paperwork in place is asking for trouble.
we only allow children to fish our matches if there parent or guardian is with them all the time.
its a shame really because i ran a kids section for years. they loved it and we had no problems but times are changing.
wasnt sure myself jimmy thats why i said ask sless like dabcatcher said working with kids is a legal minefield with enhanced disclosure needed.aye ray,i know graham runs it but i thought they had a junior section as i thought his girls uded to be in it,maybe i am wrong
