Chequers was awarded the silver accreditation in the Clubs Action Planning Scheme (CAPS) in 2010.
CAPS helps clubs to function in the most efficient way, and is all about good practice in the development of players, coaches and umpires at all levels. The CAPS process highlights all the good development work that clubs are already doing; this clarifies roles and gives help and positive encouragement to new volunteers - those who might usually hesitate before coming forward. CAPS also offers a way of maximising safe and child-friendly activities and focuses on four key areas; duty of care and child protection, coaching and competition, club management and administration and sports equity and ethics. Community links are created and strengthened. These help to attract more members, spread the administrative workload and increase the possibility of securing funding or better facilities. CAPS is the gateway to a strong regional and national network of support and communication.
Chequers Netball Club are committed to providing a safe environment for all players and want as many people involved in netball as possible. We are an open club and welcome players of all standards.
