For a club or centre to gain RYA Champion Club status they must have policies in place to ensure that the activities run are carried out in a safe and controlled environment.
Whilst this may seem bureaucratic we are aware that clubs vary tremendously in size and the activities that they run, therefore many of the policies below will not be required in every case. The policies are provided for guidance and clubs should contact their local RYA High Performance Manager for expert help and support in introducing and implementing any policies.
All the latest Youth & Junior Policies from the RYA, including Child Protection Policies.
Within related documents there are some example documents from a small/ medium size sailing club which you might find useful. Each club will need to create policies and documents that are relevent to the scale and type of activites run, these can be presented in a variety of different formats.
