Surbiton Hockey Club is committed to ensuring that all coaches, managers, volunteers, players and spectators adhere to strict Codes of Conduct both on and off the pitch. We have made available all the Codes onto this website (see below), so please ensure that you read them carefully.
England Hockey has a Code of Ethics & Behaviour which covers all people involved in hockey in this country. Everyone involved in the sport should promote equality of access and opportunity, fairness and respect. All those involved within hockey have a responsibility to act according to the highest standards of integrity and to ensure that the reputation of the sport remains high. This Code encapsulates all of the sporting, moral and ethical principles that hockey represents and is intended for all participants and disciplines within the sport however they choose to participate – as a player, umpire, coach, official, volunteer or a parent supporting on the sidelines.
We have a strictly enforced Safeguarding policy which all players, coaches, managers and parents are directed to read and use as reference for any issues that might be of concern. We have provided links to our Safeguarding Guidelines, Hockey Commitment, Equity Policy and Developmental Selection Policy and to other policies below.

These policies and other documents should be read in conjunction with the Constitution of the Club.
All Safeguarding issues and concerns should be directed to Surbiton Hockey Club’s Safeguarding Officer, Jacqui Akdeniz.
If you are considering helping at or coaching at Surbiton HC, then you will require a DBS (previously known as a CRB) check. Please contact Gill Griffiths on to organise this.
