Equality

Wirral Metro Swimming Club is committed to treating everyone equally within the context of his or her activity, regardless of sex, ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation or political persuasion.
Wirral Metro Swimming Club will ensure that equality, as stated in the club rules, is incorporated in all aspects of its activities and also recognises and adopts the Sport England definition of Sports Equality:

Sports Equality is about fairness in sport, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.

Wirral Metro Swimming Club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from the threat of discrimination, intimidation, harassment and abuse. Wirral Metro Swimming Club members have a responsibility to challenge discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.

Wirral Metro Swimming Club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to the club disciplinary procedures.
