Castlebar Racquetball Club has adopted and implemented the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children's Sport as set out by the Racquetball Association of Ireland as an integral part of club policy on children and club membership. Upon joining the Club or renewal of annual membership, all members agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and the club's Child Protection Policy. These codes and policies are set out below, and all members and their children should read and become familiar with them.
The club is not responsible for providing adult supervision for children except for formal coaching and junior competitions. Juniors competing in adult competitions must be supervised by a parent or gyardian. The club does not accept responsibility for independent recreational play e.g. two juniors arriving at the club on their own to play a game or children being left unsupervised while their parents/guardians are playing racquetball. It is strongly recommended that if children are playing in the club independently of the club's organised activities, that a parent/guardian stays with them for the duration of the activity.
