Safeguarding in Cornwall

Hockey is a great sport to be involved in and this can start at a very young age. We love it that our juniors are supported at all our competitions by parents and spectators but please be mindful of how you behave.

Hockey prides itself on good discipline (unlike some other sports!) by players, officials, coaches, parents and supporters and CHA have compiled the first of a few documents capturing the essence of RESPECT.
