WW Licensed Clubs

Why attend a WW Licensed Club?

There are lots of benefits to attending a WW licensed club. WW aim to help create a positive, safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment for its community, that will add benefit and value to the lives of all those who engage with the sport.

The Strategy and Development Manager, as well as the RDO's, work with licensed clubs to support them in many ways, ensuring that there is a high standard of coaching, good governance, opportunities to develop facilities, and inclusive and appropriate strength training activities provided for the members.

Safeguarding and Welfare

WW require licensed clubs to follow best practice in terms of safeguarding and protecting the welfare of its members. All clubs must have DBS checked, licensed coaches, leading on Weightlifting activities within the club. Licensed clubs must have clear safeguarding policies that meet the standard of the NGB, an effective welfare reporting system, and a male and female welfare officer who have both undergone safeguarding training.

WW licensed clubs are expected to adhere to the WW Member Code of Conduct and social media policies, and through doing so - along with respecting the values of the NGB - should take responsibility for the culture that is developed and promoted within the club.

WW strongly advise that all participants and parents of children who participate in the sport at any level, join a club that is licensed with Weightlifting Wales. Activity within unlicensed Weightlifting clubs is not monitored or influenced by Weightlifting Wales.

If you have concerns about the welfare of a child:

Is the child in immediate danger or are they injured?

    • If yes -> contact the emergency services

Report the concern:

  • if you're affiliated to a national governing body, refer to their safeguarding procedures about who to report the concerns to
  • if your club or activity isn’t licensed by a governing body, you can seek support from the NSPCC or your local children’s social care (social services)
  • if there's no one else available to help, contact the police
