Saffron Hawks Netball club was founded in 2009 by Club Chairman Ttandi Haralambous. As a club, we provide an environment that promotes netball for participation, competition and fun. Together, the players, staff, volunteers and parents are committed to provide our club as an outstanding asset to the wider community.
Saffron Hawks welcomes all members regardless of age, ability, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.
England Netball is firmly committed to ensure that all young people can play netball in a safe and positive environment and have their welfare protected from poor practice, abuse and bullying. To this end, England Netball has implemented a specific Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.
England Netball expects that every affiliated Club has a Club Safeguarding Officer who is responsible for acting as a central source of advice about Safeguarding issues and Club Best Practice. They should promote Safeguarding within the Club and be a person who all Junior members can go to and talk about any issues, not just netball.
Club Action Planning Scheme
At Saffron Hawks we are proud to hold the bronze accrediation.
CAPS is aligned to the Sport England Club mark accreditation scheme, which is the only national cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria that ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.
Clubs achieving this accreditation are recognised nationally as having a well run club which is active and accessible. This means getting the best out of young people and giving everyone a sporting chance.
