Health and Safety

As part of ongoing safety awareness at our Chase Basketball programs, we ask parents to be mindful of any products containing nuts when preparing lunches or snacks for their children.

Whilst Chase Basketball programs encourage a nut free environment, as a public facility: CHASE Basketball Programs are NOT totally nut free events.

Parents of children, who have suffered any anaphylactic reaction to any foods or insect bites, need to provide the Chase Basketball administration with an up-to-date medical action plan, signed by their treating doctor before their child can participate in Chase Basketball activities.

The CHASE Basketball staff is trained in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis.

Band aids and Ice Packs are available in the event of cuts or bumps.

The safety of the children attending the various Chase Basketball programs is one of the priorities of the Chase Basketball staff. the venue’s toilets are inspected prior to every session and throughout the duration of camps. All children are to go to the toilet in pairs; younger children where possible will be escorted to and from the toilets.

Early pick up from any of the Chase Basketball programs must be notified to the Chase Basketball coaching staff prior the beginning of the session / camp.

Chase Basketball places the utmost importance on the safety of the students attending any of our programs. Chase Basketball acts in accordance with State Sport Centre Trust’s Child Protection Policy. This policy can be read here.

Code of conduct can be read here.
