Protection of children and young people

Sand for All takes young people seriously and supports them in developing their own and self-confident personality through sand sports
experiences. Sand for All respects the sensitive phase of life
in childhood and adolescence and pays attention to the protection of the rights of children and young people. In its statutes, Sand für Alle commits itself to religious and ideological tolerance and resolutely opposes racist, constitutional and xenophobic aspirations as well as discrimination on the basis of sexual identity. Sand for All rejects physical, mental or sexual violence and takes effective preventive measures.

Sand for All has developed standards of conduct that offer children and adolescents as well as adults protection and safety in their
dealings. All honorary and part-time employees with qualified contact in the children's and youth sector and persons with responsibility for the implementation of multi-day measures with overnight stays undertake to comply with these principles and present an extended certificate of good conduct when starting their work. Only if it does not contain any entries on endangering the child's well-being, the activity may be started.

As a member club of the Hamburg Sports Federation, Sand für Alle has undertaken not to employ any persons who have been legally convicted of a criminal offence from the agreement on the exclusion of activities of relevant pre-existing persons in accordance with § 72 a SGB VIII.

In order to sensitize the trainers and group leaders, a risk analysis was created. If an incident of violence is identified, an intervention guide supports the clarification of the situation. The code of conduct and the guide also serve to avoid defamation and false suspicion.

If you observe physical, mental or sexualized violence or are affected by it or have questions about the topic, please contact the following contact person:

or to the Hamburg Sports Youth (psg@hamburger-sportjugend.de).
