ISAA member schools must provide the ISAA organization with details of the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or Director of the host school where there is currently no DSL (DHS). This list will be made available to all membership Athletic Directors for distribution to Tournament Directors.
ISAA recommends schools follow the UNICEF safeguarding in sports guidelines.
In the case of a student at the centre of the allegation disclosing an incident to the Tournament Director/Coach during the course of a tournament, or in the case of significant other disclosing an incident to the Tournament Director/Coach during the course of a tournament on behalf of a student e.g. a coach, parent or fellow student, the Tournament Director/Coach must:
- Immediately notify the DSL or DHS of the host school.
- Complete the Safeguarding Incident Report Form (SIRF). The Tournament Director/Coach has a duty to complete all sections of the SIRF form and send a copy to the DSL or DHS of the host school and this will be sent to the Chairman of the ISAA when appropriate.
