It is not the responsibility of the Club to transport children to and from away venues such as away matches or outside tournaments.
Parents may choose to make arrangements with another adult (such as a family friend) to transport their child. In that event where appropriate they should let the venue know and ensure that the person responsible for the transport has details of who to contact in the event of an emergency.
However, the Club can accept no responsibility for such private arrangements.
In the event that the Club does become involved in transport arrangements there is a specific policy in place
