Bury Rounders League believe that everyone involved in Rounders have a fundamental right to be protected, so that they can enjoy the sport free from all forms of abuse and exploitation. We seek to help protect and promote the welfare of all participants in Rounders by having in place clear policies and guidance for our members, officials and all others involved in the sport.


Due to legislation, changes and incidents in other sports the Welfare Co-ordinator has been working on a project over the winter (2017), to completely revamp the way we look at Safeguarding and Welfare for all that are involved in Bury Rounders League.


This has led to the new Bury Rounders Safeguarding Initiative (BRSI).


The BRSI is set out in four sections;




1.2.Data Protection


1.4.Protection Adult

1.5.Protection Young People

1.6.Social Media (E-safety)

1.7.Transgender Athletes

Each of these documents can be found on the downloads page.


We hope that the policy will assist your team as we all work towards a safer environment for the future of our sport.
