Safeguarding and Protecting Children - Appropriate adult-child touch policy in sport

    This month Dr Melanie Lang, from Edge Hill University, produced a video presentation for sports coach UK on appropriate adult-child touch in sport.

    How do coaches feel about the content and what points stand out for you or do you even disagree with?

    For me I was reassured to hear that appropriate adult-child touch in coaching has been proven to be an effective tool not only in developing effective communication and productive coaching relationships, but also helps children to identify inappropriate touch should it ever happen at a later time.

    Personally though (when javelin coaching) I avoid too much touch, purely so it is not me putting the athlete into technical throwing positions - i'd sooner they learned and 'felt' that for themself - my hope is that this makes it easier for most children to then replicate these positons.
