Online Sun Safety workshop coming in May

Hosting A Summer Tournament? Join Our Online Sunguarding Workshop on Monday 13th May (7pm-8pm).

As the scorching summer days approach, it's crucial for tournament event organizers to be well-prepared to sunguard their youth players from the heat.

That's why, in collaboration with the Melanoma Fund, we're offering a FREE virtual sunguarding workshop this May. This workshop is designed to equip event organisers with the knowledge and resources they need to ensure the well-being of attendees under the relentless sun. 

By participating, you'll gain valuable insights and practical strategies that can be implemented immediately, enhancing the safety and enjoyment of your event. 

Prolonged sun exposure can have serious health consequences, including sunburn, heatstroke, dehydration and long-term skin damage, and with our summer's becoming hotter, by implementing simple yet effective sun safety measures, tournament event organisers can protect attendees and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Our workshop, expertly delivered by the Melanoma Fund, is a comprehensive initiative aimed at raising awareness about the risks of sun exposure.
