The Board of Directors has voted to incorporate a Plan To Protect program at the Calgary Yacht Club.

Plan to Protect is a national programs that works/trains organizations to protect children and staff against abuse.  Each year approximately 500 children participate in Sailing Education Programs and Regattas at our club.  Unfortunately the issue of abuse is not a new one and has rapidly become a leading cause of concern for organizations that are responsible for the care and safety of children.

CYC is taking a very proactive approach to promote a safe place for children.  Below are a few highlights:

  • A CYC board member attended a Plan To Protect 2 day training session in Calgary
  • This training program will allow a "Train The Trainer" to further members
  • CYC has partnered with Winning Kids to develop at Plan To Protect Policy
  • The first Train the Trainer session occurred June 23, 2014.  This included paid staff, board members and GSC staff.
  • An RCMP Volunteer police information check will soon be required to volunteer at CYC when there is any interaction with youth
