As part of their on-going concern with child safety and continuous initiatives in supporting our coaching staff with their CDP’s and H&S, five of our coaches, including the Chairman attended the Emergency First Aid at Work course in Hastings. Although not a National requirement for Coaches, ESJBA believe all coaches should have First Aid awareness. This has been arranged with the support and financial concessions of the HVA (Hastings Volunteers’ Association), of which we are a member organisation.
