Safeguards for Children

UKCoaching.org is not aimed at children.

However, on 1 September 2021 under UK GDPR:

  • the definition of 'child' changed from anyone 13 or under to anyone under 18
  • websites are considered directly available to children when no age restrictions are in place, or when any age restrictions in place allow users under the age of 18.

We're working on upgrading the ways users register on our website to reflect these changes, which we hope to have completed soon.

Please note, content may indeed feature children as many coaches in the UK coach children. We only post content that features children in accordance with the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit's Guidance.
