Health promotion action aims at making these conditions favorable through advocacy for health to improve quality of life.


Health promotion focuses on achieving equity in health. Health promotion action aims at reducing differences in current health status and ensuring equal opportunities and resources to enable all people to achieve their fullest health potential. 


The prerequisites and prospects for health cannot be ensured by the health sector alone. More importantly, health promotion demands coordinated action by all concerned: by the club’s management, technical staffs and external medical facility 



Competing in games increases the opportunity to experience a sports injury. Therefore, coaches should gain knowledge concerning first aid care and the prevention of injury. When coaches teach their athletes sport skills, these athletes must develop precise technical movements in order to produce peak athletic performance.


Such movements, along with the demands placed on athletes’ muscles when accelerating, decelerating, or changing direction, increase the risk of injury. These performance demands create internal forces on athletes’ bodies and when combined with external forces (e.g., body contact), injury risk can significantly increase. Coaches need to be aware of these potential risks when developing training regimens for participants competing at any level of sport. Ajman Club has awareness session individual for coaches, Medical staffs and Ground staffs in the beginning of all new season


Training and Awareness: 

Ajman Club will ensure an appropriate level of safeguarding training is available to its Trustees, Employees, Volunteers and any relevant persons linked to the organization who requires it throughout the season. 

For all employees who are working or volunteering with children, this requires them as a minimum to have awareness training that enables them to: 

  • Understand what safeguarding is and their role in safeguarding children 

  • Recognize a child potentially in need of safeguarding and take action

  • Understand how to report a safeguarding alert

  • Understand dignity and respect when working with children

  • Have knowledge of the Safeguarding Children Policy

Confidentiality and Information Sharing: 

Ajman Club expects all employees, volunteers and trustees to maintain confidentiality. Information will only be shared with the Child Safety Officer and Administration through email. However, information should be shared with the Local Authority if a child is deemed to be at risk of harm or contact the police if they are in immediate danger, or a crime has been committed. 

Recording and Record Keeping: 

A written record must be kept about any concern regarding a Child with safeguarding needs. This must include details of the person involved, the nature of the concern and the actions taken, decisions made and why they were made. All records must be signed and dated. All records must be securely and confidentially stored in Administration. 

Safe Recruitment & Selection: 

Ajman Club is committed to safe employment and safe recruitment practices that reduce the risk of harm to children from people unsuitable to work with them or have contact with them. Ajman Club has policies and procedures that cover the recruitment of all Trustees, employees and volunteers. [Good standing certificate from previous job / Police clearance certificate]. 

Social Media: 

All employees and volunteers should be aware of Ajman club’s social media policy and procedures and the code of conduct for behavior towards the children. Not amended to share photos, videos, and documents without the consent from the parents or legal authorities responsible 


Use of Mobile Phones and other Digital Technology: 

All employees, trustees and volunteers should be aware of Ajman club’s policy and procedures regarding the use of mobile phones and any digital technology and understand that it is unlawful to photograph children and young people without the explicit consent of the person with parental responsibilities. 



It is important that people within Ajman clubs have the confidence to come forward to speak or act if they are unhappy with anything. Whistle blowing occurs when a person raises a concern about dangerous or illegal activity, or any wrong- doing within their organization. This includes concerns about another employee or volunteer. There is also a requirement by Ajman Clubs to protect whistleblowers.


For that implementing awareness camps for children and Parents

Also, for staffs and coaches. 2023-2024 updates Awareness sessions:


  • Implementing one youth camp during pre-season and choosing the next emerging stars

  • Safeguarding for all staffs – Parents, Coaches, Managers, ground staff and drivers and medical team

  • Also selecting new volunteer from each team- Supervisor and kids representative

  • Safeguarding session for kids with their coaches, manager and supporting staff- By safeguarding representative



  • Our players' parents and sports coaches are doing an incredibly supportive task by just being the sports coaches, but many are doing so much more. Our coaches build relationships with students around a common interest and area of the child’s life where they may see their efforts paying off. 


  • As our coaches build relationships with the students this helps us to reinforce good study habits incorporating a set amount of reading or studying time prior to each training session. Parents know the importance of daily reading and content-area studying and took it upon themselves to create a time and space for their child to do it between their workouts. In doing that, they conveyed that literacy was as important to them as their child's success out on the pitch.


  • All student-athletes with a cumulative grade point average 90% and above are recognized with a token of appreciation from the media side exhibiting a photo with their excellence mentioned below.
