Basketball Wales continues to work with Sport Wales and NSPCC Wales
to review and improve our safeguarding policies and procedures.

Everyone has the right to play basketball in a safe and secure environment. Basketball Wales want everyone involved in basketball to have fun and enjoy the game so are committed to safeguarding children and adults at risk.

The implementation of new membership software next year will further improve our safeguarding capabilities as members will be able to update key documents including DBS Checks and Safeguarding course certificates to a secure database for verification.

Clubs are reminded that Basketball Wales can carry out DBS checks for coaches and volunteers at a heavily discounted rate thanks to our ongoing partnership with the Welsh Sports Association and Vibrant Nation.

DBS checks can be carried out by emailing

We work closely with all our clubs to ensure that safeguarding children and adults at risk is prioritised. Any allegation, suspicion of harm or concern is taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately.

If you’re worried and have any safeguarding concerns please email your concerns will be deal with confidentially and sensitively.
