WHAT ABOUT SAFEGUARDING?

All Leisure United staff are DBS checked and the managers also attend a welfare course. The hub General Manager is the Welfare Officer on site, and we have a strict policy that can be shared upon request. We also work with the Derbyshire County FA to ensure that the hub is a safe place to take part in football. We have a zero tolerance of antisocial behaviour, and this issue is taken very seriously. We want all people using the facility to enjoy the hub and what it offers.

Can i smoke or vape?

No! We do not allow smoking or vaping around the pitches or inside any part of the building. People who want to smoke are asked to go to the designated area that will be away from the building.

Can anyone go on the pitches?

You can only go on the pitch if you are actively playing or participating in football activities and must only do so if wearing the correct footwear. At no time can spectators enter the pitch as this will damage the surface. Parents, spectating should offer their support by watching from the tarmac areas around the pitches. Please remember that football for juniors is fun and spectators should refrain from interfering with coaching or game play.
