Kirkcaldy Ice Skating Clubs rules, regulations and policies. 

Any Problems

Any problems with any aspect of the running of the club please speak to a member of the committee.  

Should you be unhappy with any aspect of your child’s coaching, please speak to the individual coach. A Coach is the first person to go to. Alternatively, approach the chairperson who will be happy to help you.

Photography and Filming

All parents must complete a photography and film consent form annually.

In accordance with NISA safeguarding policy we do not permit photographs, video or other images of young people to be taken without the consent of the parents / carers and the child.

KISC will take all steps to ensure these images are used solely for the purposes they are intended.  If you become aware that these images are being used inappropriately you should inform the club child protection officer immediately.

Professional photos / videos will be taken at the club show and competition.  These are available to buy.  

KISC may use photographs or film or the children on official club social media sites, the website and other club related promotional activity such as press releases and club noticeboards.

Parents are not allowed to take photos / videos during coaching sessions unless granted specific permission by a coach.  Cameras must not be used in the changing rooms.
