All parents are reminded that joining the Townsville Brothers Swimming Club does not mean that you should leave your child/children unaccompanied at the pool.
Your responsibility is to your children, especially at Club Nights. The Club has no responsibility to mind the children for you.
The Club also has to comply with a screening obligation under the Australian Swimming Member Protection Policy (MPP) and the Commission for Children and Young People Act . Accordingly, all members who belong to a club need also comply with this policy. Appropriate documentation will need to be completed by members who volunteer their services during the year for a Blue Card.
