2018-11-04 11:54 - Policy and Procedures
Posted by HopkinsAmanmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZOver the past few months, the FeNZ Board has reviewed, updated and introduced new policies, which can be found on the website. We are continuing to improve and update policies.

•    Health and Safety Policy and Incident Reporting Forms - overseen by our new Health & Safety Officer Neil Young.
•    Appeals and Conduct Policy and Procedures (NEW)
•    Code of Conduct and National Representation policy
•    FeNZ Coaches’ Code of Conduct
•    Squad Coach Policy
•    Minimum Age Policy
•    Protocols and equipment requirements
•    Women fencing in Men’s events
•    Agreements for touring Coaches and Managers
•    Guidelines for Appointment and Compensation of tour managers and coaches
•    National representation and wearing of emblems policy

The latest policy is the new Appeals and Conduct Policy and Procedures, adopted at the October Board meeting.

Two levels of unacceptable conduct have been identified and the Disciplinary Committee established to consider referrals or complaints about members or to make enquiries of its own initiative in relation to conduct of an athlete, coach, official or supporter.

A new committee, the Appeals Panel has been formed to deal with challenges to Board decisions or appeals against selection or non-selection.

2018-11-04 11:48 - FeNZ Safety Officer appointment
Posted by HopkinsAmanmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAt its October meeting, the FeNZ Board appointed its first Safety Officer, Neil Young of Auckland. As a fencer still competing, an active referee and a coach, Neil with his personal skills and knowledge is ideally placed to lead our safety programme and educational initiatives. His role, as a member of the Officiating Commission, will develop over time, but initially he will focus on:

    Implementation of the FeNZ safety policy (available under ‘Downloads’ on this website) at national and regional tournaments;
    Receiving and monitoring Safety incident reports from competition organisers and first aid officials;
    Recommending refereeing or coaching initiatives to better mitigate against fencing injuries;
    Reviewing and advising the Board on new equipment regulations notified;
    Working through regional safety officers, to encourage safe practices in club events, training and coaching activities;
    Circulating safety education and guidance material to athletes, coaches and referees.

A particular injury concern from the past season has been the increased number of concussion and head injury incidents.  More information about avoiding bodily collisions and impact to the head region will be issued in the near future.

Congratulations Neil.  We all need to support and work with Neil, helping make our sport safe and enjoyable for all fencers.

2018-11-04 11:27 - Insurance update
Posted by HopkinsAmanmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZThe FeNZ Board has placed new insurance covers on a national basis for liability and property, as from 1 July 2018. It is the first time comprehensive cover has been arranged.

This means that all assets, fencing equipment and chattels owned or held by FeNZ and its four regions are covered under one policy. Please note that presently, the cover does not apply to property held by a club or an individual fencer.

Public (General) liability, statutory liability and association liability insurance applies to all affiliated fencers, referees, coaches, managers and officials, as well the Board and national and regional officers and committee members.

Importantly for our members, fencers when competing, officiating, coaching or training, whether in a NZ event or overseas (except North America and certain countries) are now covered for any personal liability for injury caused to another competitor, or a referee or official, or damage to other people’s property.

To be entitled to the benefit of the liability cover you must be an affiliated member at the time of the activity concerned.

If you have any questions about the insurances now held, or are concerned about potential liability you may have following a fencing incident, you should contact the secretary of your region.
