Child Welfare Statement
Safe – Fun -Fair
Rush Athletic believe that childrens soccer should be Safe and Fun for all participants and conducted in the spirit of fair play to all.
All children and young people who play soccer should be able to do so in a safe and enjoyable environment.
While doing so they should be protected from any form of abuse, be it physical, emotional, sexual, neglect or bullying.
The responsibility for protecting children lies with all adults involved in soccer.
Any concerns in relation to Child Welfare should be addressed to any of the three Rush Athletic FC Designated Child Welfare Officers.

Thanks a million.
There are also some other documents worth reading on the website and it wouldn't be a bad idea to ask the parents to read the documents too.
