Stop bullying happening!

Fish character

“Nearly everyone is bullied at some time in their lives: by brothers and sisters, by neighbours, by adults or by other children. If you are being bullied, you may feel scared, vulnerable and quite alone but you owe it to yourself to try and sort out the situation so that the bullying stops.

Remember, no-one deserves to be bullied. KIDSCAPE:2008

The ASA are committed to preventing bullying in your swimming club but if you feel you or someone you know is being bullied you should:       

  • Use the tear off slip on the Child Friendly Leaflet.
  • Tell your club Welfare Officer, Coach or another adult you trust.
  • Tell your Mum or Dad.
