Guidelines for Photographic/Recorded Images

When parents/guardians register their children as a member of Crosshaven Basketball Club they are granting their
consent for the possible taking and publication of photographs and video footage of their children in the promotion of
the club and the sport and the use of such imagery in line with the Crosshaven Basketball Club Guidelines outlined below:

All children/young people featured in recordings must be appropriately dressed.

The photograph or recording should focus on the activity rather than on a particular young person.

No personal details relating to the young person should be revealed as accompanying materials to the
photograph or recorded image.

Clubs, coaches and volunteers are permitted to use video equipment as a legitimate coaching aid and as a
means of recording special occasions. Where a recording will be published on the websites, social media or
distributed to parents or children, this should be notified beforehand to the relevant children’s officer within
the Section. If the club or relevant committee are unhappy with any of the material they are entitled to
withdraw their consent and destroy the material involved.

Parents and spectators taking photographs/recordings should be prepared to identify themselves if requested
and state the purpose for their photography/filming. If Club Personnel are unhappy about any matter relating
to such photography the person can be asked to stop immediately.

Photography and the recording of images in a public place do not generally require explicit or prior consent.
However if an event e.g. a game or training session is taking place, involving under age players, in a public,
private or local authority venue, and if you are in charge of such an event you are obliged to request a person
to stop taking photos if you feel that such action or photography may be inappropriate.

Group and team photographs may be taken but it is not necessary to match a player’s name. The photograph
may appear with the player’s name recorded underneath but need not be in the order in which they appear in
the photograph.

It is recognised that on certain occasions individual young people may receive recognition and may be
presented with an award. When this happens in the case of an under age player any such photography or
recording of events that involves individual presentations should be discussed in advance of the event and
agreement reached with the club, parents and the young person themselves, as to what is and what is not

Any instances of the use of inappropriate images should be reported to the Section/Club’s Children’s Officer
and/or Designated Person and also to the relevant statutory authorities as deemed appropriate.
