Supporting NGBs, professional clubs, grassroots clubs and collegiate athletics to improve player wellbeing
Powered by Impero Software, Locker is a safe and secure next-generation digital wellbeing system, designed specifically for National Governing Bodies (NGBs), professional clubs, grassroots sports clubs and collegiate athletics. All organizations and clubs offering a sport or activity have a responsibility to promote the safety of their young athletes. Locker empowers coaches, volunteers, organizers and other staff to record and manage safety concerns and injuries in a consolidated platform to help flag early warning signs, enable informed intervention and keep athletes safe.
Protecting young people in sport
Risks for young athletes come in many forms, from bullying, injuries and physical abuse to radicalization, racial abuse and mental health concerns. These risks can lead to others – including self-harm and suicide. When young people are in their care, sports clubs have a duty to protect their athletes and prevent these risks. In light of recent cases in all sports across the globe, it is essential that coaches, volunteers, organizers and other staff focus on the physical, mental and emotional growth of athletes at all levels of age and competition.
Construct a detailed background and demographic profile on each athlete, providing you with the basis and context required to intervene early and appropriately, and make informed decisions concerning follow-up action.
Access a complete wellbeing history for each athlete, including welfare, behavioral and mental health concerns, as well as first aid incidents and medical needs. View detailed chronologies and printable reports, tag cases on multiple athletes, and share concerns with other staff as appropriate.
Store and access athlete safety policies, such as key government legislation and memos, with links to templates and national guidance located in one place. Add and log your organization or NGB’s documents and policies, using the inbuilt audit tool to evidence your club’s progress and compliance.
Log all information relevant to injuries, whether they occur in or outside the club, for a comprehensive view of an athlete’s health. This allows trends to be easily identified and addressed.
Track and manage the follow-up action in relation to all incidents, detailing any external referrals made. This detailed log helps sports clubs audit and review their wellbeing activity.
Easily manage color-coded alerts, grouped by priority and allocated to different staff members, for efficient follow-up and effective intervention management across the entire club.
Staff training record
Maintain and evidence staff training and background checks with a complete and customizable log of certificates and assessments. Receive notifications when training is due to ensure that staff stay updated on the latest safety practices for young people.
For organizations with multiple clubs, or NGBs, use the global view of audit responses and concerns to identify trends by club, age or location. Target your organization’s training, financial resources or intervention strategies appropriately based on the day-today information clubs enter into the system.
Criminal record checks
Record criminal record, identification and background checks, ensuring that all staff working with young athletes have undertaken the appropriate checks. Flag any missing information for review and use reminders to keep track of ongoing compliance.
Combining a range of information from multiple data points, creating a digital profile of an athlete’s wellbeing. Establishing a complete visual picture to provide the insight that staff need to contextualize risk early.
