Copies of the Club Constitution, Child Protection Policy, Equity Policy and Complaints Procedures are all available to view at the desk each Thursday evening. Please ask the committee member on duty if you would like to view this.
The Oban Otters Amateur Swimming Club constitution is based on the model SASA Constitution and is available on request.
Oban Otters, as an Affiliated Club of the Scottish Amateur Swimming Association (SASA), have adopted the SASA child protection guidelines. These guidelines have been set in place following the full enactment of the Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003, enforceable from 10th January 2005.
The guidelines cover both amateur and professional people where close contact with children is possible. They are designed to give protection to both children and adults. Two courses are provided by SASA, the Good practice Course (essential for all adults with potential contact with children) and the Child protection Course (essential for the Club’s Child Protection Officer- CPO)
If you would like any further information regarding the above or have any concerns regarding child protection issues within Oban Otters ASC please contact the Club’s CPO in confidence: Yvonne MacKechnie
If you have a problem, please approach a committee member on door duty and he/she will do their best to deal with it. If you are still unhappy, please put the grievance in writing to the club Secretary within 30 days and the committee will discuss the matter at the next meeting. You will be informed of the outcome in writing.
