Aviators Cheer cannot thank Joey enough for the excellent Safeguarding for Cheerleading Squad Safe course. The great thing about the course is that it is specifically tailored to our industry, which goes above and beyond anything else we have seen. We learned so much on the course and Joey's insights and many years of experience in the industry ensured we all came away with a much deeper understanding of relevant safeguarding practice then anything we had done prior. 10/10 would recommend!
Jessie Leigh Dance and Cheer Academy
All of the coaching Staff at JLDC had a great afternoon with Joey learning about the importance of Safeguarding within our Academy. It was especially an eye opener for the younger coaches that learnt what role they play in ensuring the safety for all of our athletes and families. We left our training with so much new information to take in and ways to implement new systems within our business. We feel more confident and know what to look out for. We highly recommend this to anyone who works with young children and feel something like this should be compulsory.
East Midlands Cheer Academy
Joey delivered an excellent course. She was interesting and informative to listen to. She provided everything we needed to know whilst engaging the course participants. I would highly recommend this course, and Joey. Thank you very much for this specifically tailored safeguarding qualification.
3 Degreez Allstarz
Thank you for a very informative session, I felt at ease the whole time and never judged. On a personal note I love in person courses as it separates the chaos of normal life, but equally it was amazing to be able to do a course via zoom in these times and still get the same from it! I would 100% recommend Squad safe, it was a great way for us to cement our knowledge as a team and facilitate team conversations about our policies and incidents we have experienced as a club.
Cheer Canada, National Federation
We retained Joey for a breakout session for our most recent virtual AGM. We were very impressed with her presentation and her energy. Joey is very passionate and knowledgeable about child protection and, as an added bonus, the sport of Cheer. After the session, many of our attendees asked for her contact information to set up their own courses so that speaks volumes to us, as an NSO. Safe Sport is a number one priority for Cheer Canada and we were thrilled to offer this workshop to our attendees. Her judgement free, sensitive presentation, was bookmarked by her availability long before and after the session.
Red Hot Flames
The course was excellent and appropriate for our industry. The content was in detail and Joey captured our attention for the whole session. She was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and experienced. I was extremely happy with the course. I feel my coaches and assistants are now better equipped and more knowledgeable if an issue was to arise. I did have concerns re: delivering the course via zoom, but can confidently say the course was great.
Twisted Cheer and Dance
The course was very well broken down into manageable topics that linked together seamlessly. Bringing in case studies and real examples, both from the trainer and our own experience made it much easier to contextualise the theory. The combination of slides and group discussion made it easy to disseminate the information and take it on board without being inundated with information. Knowing that our trainer has hands-on experience in our industry reassured me and gave me confidence in the teaching she was delivering
Warrington Cheer Storm
Thanks very much for the course. It was reassuring in what we do well already, but also how we can improve.
Great level, excellent information. Pitched very well.
East Coast Tigers
Our coaching team had a fantastic experience with Safe Squad. Joey kept the course interesting and engaging and we all completed the course feeling not only more knowledgable about safeguarding as a whole, but more confident that we would know how to deal with any situations that may arise within our gym. Joey has since been extremely helpful with any questions we have had afterwards and its reassuring to know she is just an e-mail away if needed. High recommended course! Thank you so much.
Aylesbury Cheerleading Academy
A fantastic course I would consider a necessity to complete if you work with children in sport. I would definitely recommend to anyone working in sport or children in general. Our trainer’s knowledge was excellent. Everything was presented and taught well, with good interaction and well adapted for Zoom. All topics were discussed in a relative scenario that we could potentially see in our industry and a real eye opener to less obvious areas of safeguarding.
Fame Allstars UK
It was honestly was the best Safeguarding/child protection course we have completed. The delivery was very clear and precise and kept all attendees engaged. Joey was very approachable and willing to answer all questions to help clarify any confusion. She thoroughly covers all topics and scenarios while showing discretion to those who may find anything triggering. I would highly recommend any clubs/ organisations to book the Squad safe training with Joey, it will leave you feeling more confident with handling any issues, should any arise in the future.
Legacy Cheer and Dance Ltd
As an event provider, athlete safety is our number one priority. Because it is so critical, Joey has been our Designated Safeguarding Officer since day one. To say she has been an absolute God-send to us is still an understatement. Her attention to detail and her expertise in the areas of Child Protection, Risk Assessments, Policy Writing, and all things related to safety, wellbeing, and protection of children and adults is both exceptional and very personal
