Hello my name is Edith Coakley and I look after Membership and Safeguarding in Badminton Ireland.
September 2017 Update
I hope you have had a well-rested and enjoyable summer and we wish all our members a great season of Badminton ahead. Our book of business is open so for anyone wishing to affiliate early in the season we are more than happy to facilitate that. Our costs haven't changed from last year and we are delighted to still be in a position to offer a 50% discount to all our new adult members
A reminder to all clubs that the Insurance policy from Odon Insurance is given on payment of your Club fee. This Insurance ONLY covers Badminton Ireland members, therefore if you have anyone playing in your club not affiliated to Badminton Ireland then they are not covered by the Insurance policy in the event of an incident occuring.
For all clubs that have one of more juveniles or vulnerable persons within the club you MUST have a responsible adult acting as your Safeguarding Officer. You must advise Badminton Ireland on whom that person is, they must be affiliated to BI, be Garda vetted and have completed a Safeguarding course or at least have one in the pipeline. On completion of the course a copy of the cert must be sent to BI to be kept on file.
If you have any queries at all you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Best of luck for season 2017/18
